The Fishing is Great on Lac Seul and at our Outpost Camp
For sportsman's and family vacations alike come to Goose Bay Camp on Lac Seul, Ear Falls, Ontario. Try our Housekeeping accommodations or settle in at our boat-in outpost camp. We also provide a trailer park and tenting facilities. Package plan hunting is available.
Our base camp on Lac Seul has ten modern cabins and a full service R.V. parking area including shower house. We rent boats and motors and have dockage for those that bring their own boat. The walleye fishing on Lac Seul is unequaled by any drive-to lake in both quality and quantity.
Goose Bay Camp is located on the north end of Lac Seul four miles south of Ear Falls. Lac Seul is 110 miles long (over 180 km) and is Northwestern Ontario's premier drive-to walleye and northern pike fishery. We also have a three cabin boat-in outpost camp located on the south shore of Nungesser Lake, which is 35 miles (58km) northeast of Red Lake. This lake is 33 miles long (55km) and is an excellent walleye and northern pike fishery.
Goose Bay Camp is situated in the heart of the finest moose, bear and bird hunting in Ontario; hunting that begins just outside the camp. Six different moose hunting packages are offered to suit your level of service and budget. Hunt bear on the second largest Bear Management Area in Northwestern Ontario, where our overall success averages 75%. Hunt ruffed grouse, ducks or wolves on a small game license. For an outfitter and guides that produce, come to Goose Bay Camps.
We offer a fall bear hunts on 1,100 square kilometers of Bear Management Area: the second largest in Northwestern Ontario. We have a success rate of 80% for rifle hunters and 65% for bow hunters. Our adult moose allocation is in Wildlife Management Units #3, #4, and #5; whereas, we may hunt for calves and grouse anywhere. The ruffed grouse, bear, and moose populations are high and this area has well developed forest access roads to facilitate your access to all three species of game.
For bear hunting see rates below and for moose hunting rates please get in touch with our camp.
