Canadian Walleye & Northern Pike Fishing Wilderness Vacations in Northern Ontario Canada by Float Plane or Train


Welcome to Errington's Wilderness Island Resort

Errington FamilyWe are Al and Doris Errington. We are pictured here with our son Devin and daughter Morgan. Our family has provided quality wilderness recreation since 1975. We operate our resort on a small group of neighboring islands easily accessible via the famous ALGOMA CENTRAL RAILWAY or float plane. Lake Wabatongushi, which covers over 10,000 acres, has some 70 uninhabited islands, many streams and rivers, thousands of acres of adjacent wet lands and miles of nature trails. Since it is the second largest lake in the World's Largest Wildlife Preserve sightings of wildlife such as Moose, Black Bear, Loons and Bald Eagles, to name a few are numerous. The only hunting allowed since 1925, inside the over 3,000 square mile CHAPLEAU GAME PRESERVE, is with a camera. There is also EXCELLENT FISHING for Walleye, Northern Pike, Perch and Whitefish. WILDERNESS ISLAND RESORT - ROUGH IT IN VELVET! Very comfortable accommodations, fine dining and courteous service on a 10 acre island. American Plan and Housekeeping packages available. All accommodations are roomy and comfortable with 3 or 4 piece washrooms.

Excerpts from articles about resort and area:

Ontario Canada Ministry of Tourism: "The World's Largest Game Preserve isn't in Africa" - "moose roam free on two million acres of natural beauty at Chapleau Game Preserve, where the only shooting is with a camera"

The TORONTO STAR: "For an intimate wildlife experience, Errington's Wilderness Islands is the place to go...At Errington's it seems that animals sense they're out of danger and are quite approachable.  Loons, an elusive waterbird, actually surface within ten feet of the boat and remain long enough for one to notice the red in their eyes.   Moose casually look up from a feeding spot, then dip their heads back into the water to uproot water lilies."

The GLOBE & MAIL: "The sights are simply wild at Errington's resort" "To birders it is heaven, with eagles and ospreys, but those who want to see moose and bears won't be disappointed. And you can also fish."

Barron's Outdoor Guide: "Ontario's All Aboard Angling" "Lake wabatongushi itself is located in the world's largest wildlife sanctuary, the 2 million acre Chapleau Crown Game Preserve, which accounts for our having seen bear, moose and other game every day of our week long stay." "18-POUND NORTHERN" "The fishing was great too, and we took pike (up to 18 pounds) on the fly in the shallow bays and walleye from the depths, trolling crankbaits or deep jigging with jig-and-grub combos."

The Best of Ontario by Mary Macpherson: "Errington's Wilderness Islands" "The setting provided a perfect backdrop for the wilderness experience" "Algoma Central Railway" "One of the most spectacular train excursions in North America is on the Algoma Central Railway" "Chapleau Game Preserve and Wildlife Sanctuary" "The opportunities for viewing and photographing wildlife is exceptional"

The COLUMBUS DISPATCH: "All Aboard Anglers" "While fishing for Northern Pike and Walleye is the major lure at Errington's, simply watching the wildlife is becoming more popular each season. Moose, bears, loons and eagles are a few of the more popular species spotted there." "As for the dining arrangements, lodge guests enjoy an American Plan, while cabin guests may choose that or prepare their own meal. (My recommendation: Opt for the wonderful home-style meals.)" "we shared the lodge with a contingent of Audubon Society members, who added so many species to their "life list" that they re-booked space for summer before their week was half-completed"

Milwaukee Journal - August 24, 1986: "Moose and more in the Ontario Forest" "surrounded by hundreds of square miles of northern Ontario pine forests. A 23 mile long lake bulging with walleye and northern pike is at his doorstep. Moose feed regularly in the bay behind his lodge, and grouse fight for possession of the footbridge that connects two of his three islands in the northern corner of the lake.
