Pickerel Arm is a 20 mile long branch of Minnitaki Lake on which camp is centrally located at its widest point of 3/4 miles across. From Moonlight Falls near the south end to a deep water haven for lake trout at Lyons Bay, the Arm has an excellent variety of structure that inhabits walleyes, feisty northerns and smallmouth bass of trophy size. Beyond the Arm is Minnitaki Lake with many bays and rivers that can easily be reached in 20-30 minutes.

This entire area of the lake is special for keeping the full scenic wilderness appeal along with good fishing. The north part of the lake has 3 adjoining lakes, rivers and several more islands. There are 240 miles of shoreline on Minnitaki Lake alone and it is all accessible by boat.

OUR MAIN BASE CAMP - As you enter Pickerel Arm Camp you will notice a big log cabin. It is the largest of 9 rental units and accommodates 8 to 10 people. All other cabins and cottages comfortably sleep 4 to 6 people. Each includes a fully equipped kitchen, double or single beds with linens, bathroom with shower, electric heat, and a screened porch. Everything you need for housekeeping is included, except towels which are available upon request.

Our bay provides swimming and use of the camp pedal boat, as well as fish to be caught right off the docks. It is common to see ducks, loons and other waterfowl at our bay, and there is always the chance you will see a moose or an eagle while out on the lake. A closeup view of the wonders of the wilderness is right outside your door. One of the Pickerel Arm Camps aircraft may be reserved for a panoramic view of the lake and surrounding area, or a day trip may be taken to one of the outpost lakes upon availability.

The town of Sioux Lookout, which is just 20 minutes away, offers daytime shopping, beaches, a museum and library, plus a movie theater at night. A fun, challenging 9 hole golf course and a fully modern fitness center are open for visitors. A 10 day Blueberry Festival in August follows the blueberry picking season.

Whatever you may choose to do other than fishing or boating, Pickerel Arm Camp looks forward to knowing you are relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the lake and area.

You will discover for yourself some of the best fishing in Northwest Ontario along with awesome beauty of the vast wilderness. You will find tranquility with nature and all of your senses will come alive; the first tugs of a fish on your line and a fresh fish fry are just part of the beginning. It should not go unmentioned that many summer nights provide the most spectacular array of northern lights you may ever see.

Each of Pickerel Arm Camps 9 cabins are on different sized lakes, one of which is on a river, and are fully equipped for housekeeping. All include comfortable sleeping, solar powered lighting, hot water, shower, and radio phone communication with base camp.

Pickerel Arm Camp trys our best to have all guests at their lake before noon and suggest time of arrival at base camp to be two hours before approximate flight time if not the night ahead. Should our bunkhouse at base camp not be available upon request, we can assist with referrals to nearby accommodations.

When you arrive at your lake, your pilot will take a few minutes to make sure everything is in proper order. A scheduled mid-stay check flight will bring extra ice and other general camp supplies if needed, plus any extras such as bait, beverages or miscellaneous items you might request in advance.
