Manitou Weather Station Fishing Lodge & Cabins

An Experience of a Lifetime

The Manitou Weather Station Fishing Lodge is located in Northwestern Ontario, Canada, about 50 miles north of International Falls, MN on the Lower Manitou Lake.  The lake is famous for its fishing and its rich history of gold mining in the late 1800s.

The fishing here is fantastic, some of the best in NW Ontario.  Our experienced and knowledgeable fishing guides will help you find trophy muskie, pike, bass, lake trout, and even walleye.  We have wonderful modern fishing boats to rent if you are planning a DIY fishing trip, and even an on-site tackle shop.  We’ve got your Canadian fishing adventure covered!

Our camp is set within rustic shorelines in a protected cove, far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but modern enough to make you feel right at home.  We have 4 cabins within walking distance from the main lodge, each with modern amenities, power, running water, bathrooms, separate bedrooms, full kitchen and comfortable furniture.

Around the main lodge, where we serve daily meals, we have a hot tub, sauna, communal deck, swimming dock, spacious dining area, fire pit, and more.  We offer an exciting and comfortable excursion perfect for families!

Special lifelong memories are created at the Manitou Weather Station, we hope to see you soon!

Amazing. Hoping to see my own sunset up there soon.

Put the lure in the water works best

Some fishing pictures from August.   
Had the cousins from Alberta out in August. They each caught a bunch of fish. 

Ethan caught his first Muskie!!!  Right off the dock. 

Dennis got his name on the board with a nice muskie

Picture of the leader board.  Still plenty of time to get your name on the board.
