Camp Manitou Outpost
A camp away from it all
Private island on the stretch of Lower Manitou
Camp Manitou Outpost
Camp Manitou Outpost is located on its own private island on the stretch of Lower Manitou, (15) km from Esox Landing.
The island is home to six cabins. Two of the cabins have full kitchen and living spaces, modern plumbing full electrical power, with the others serving as sleeping cabins.
Sitting at the heart of it all is the Pavillion. The Pavilion is filled with outdoor seating and eating spaces, with an outdoor cooking and BBQ area and the host of a historical fireplace built out of local amethyst and quartz rock collected from the Manitou.
Our Outpost is powered by solar and helped by a generator when needed, meaning guests can charge their electronics and have lights at all times during the day. Hot water is always available with an on demand system and guests can have access to wifi to stay in touch with friends, families or business at home, or to brag about their catches of the day. There are two large docks located on opposite sides of the island, allowing for ample parking space and your choice of parking depending on the wind.
There are spots for your recycling and garbage to be separated and stored at the end of your trip.
The Migisi cabin, Ojibway for Eagle, has two bedrooms, with two single beds in each room, a full kitchen, great views of the lake from the dining and sitting area, as well as an indoor fireplace and bathroom. There is a BBQ just outside the door and it is located directly behind the Pavillion.
The Legend cabin is located high up on a hill overlooking the rest of the island offering great views of the lake. This cabin can hold up to ten people. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large loft sitting area, a large kitchen and dining table to seat 10, and an indoor fireplace. The BBQ is located outside on the deck which wraps around half of the cabin. This is an ideal cabin for large parties, or those who want extra space.
The other cabins on the property are a mix of different sized sleeping cabins. In total, the island can hold up to 32 people. It is a great place for those wishing for a bit more isolation, or for those families or parties looking to host a large group like a reunion, bachelor or bachelorette party, or corporate group.
