Give yourself five hours. It may take a little less, a little more.

The only live bait allowed across the border: worms in buss bedding, no dirt. No other live bait is allowed.

All guests who will be operating the boat and motor will be required to read and check off a boaters safety list that will make them liable for all damages to the motor, boat and prop. Another option is to take out our boat/motor insurance. This will cover any damage to the boat or motor that may occur during your stay. PLEASE BOAT RESPONSIBLY!

In Sioux Lookout, the all-new Johnny’s Supermarket is your best bet. It’s a full-service grocery store with fresh meats, vegetables, bakery, and just about anything you would need. In Dryden and Thunder Bay there are several grocery stores. In Ignace, there is a small IGA. This link may provide helpful information: http://www.ontariotowns.net

No. Wildewood is an outpost camp. However, we do stock some items we find guests need most often (i.e. milk, butter, bread, charcoal, soda, etc.) We usually go to “town” once a week.

There is air ambulance service for the area. We can also arrange for you to fly out early.

Because of our location, the camp does not have regular phone service; we have a radio phone for emergencies. If you need to make a call, just ask. However, you will be charged for all calls made. Note: mobile phones do not work in our area. Satellite phones will work, if you’d like to bring one.

They can call 807-584-2999 and leave a message and we’ll leave it on your cabin door.

We are in the forest/bush; hence there are bugs. Mostly you will have mosquitoes at dusk (black flies as spring turns to summer and deer/horse flies in summer months). Bring repellant and mosquito coils and you will be okay.

Our weather is pretty much the same as it is in the northern part of the U.S. You should always bring rain gear and warm clothes, just in case. Layers work best. You may leave in the morning hours when it’s cooler, then as the day gets warmer, you may work your way down to a T-shirt. Sunscreen is a great idea also. Check the current weather report for Lake Savant.

We invite all guests in camp to join us on their first night at the lodge for complimentary hot dogs & chips, fishing updates from previous weeks and a brief orientation. It gives everyone a chance to say hello to old friends and meet new ones. We do ask you to bring your own beverage.
