Drive-in Base CampFather & Son with Walleyes

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 trophy size smallmouth bass.

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 great fishing. The north part of the lake has 3 adjoining lakes, rivers and several more islands. There are 240 miles of shoreline and 44,695 acres on Minnitaki Lake alone and it is all accessible by boat.

We are always happy to review the lake map with newcomers for current best fishing areas and methods. Fishing licenses are now only available online.



Base Camp Living RoomAs you enter 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 comfortably sleep 4 to 6 people. Each includes a fully equipped modern 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. For a list of what we provide at the base camp and what you should bring, please click here or check our FAQ.

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.

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, we look forward to knowing you are relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the lake and area.
