Formerly (Camp CAN-USA) The resort is located on a 5.5 acre island centrally located in the hub of beautiful Lake Temagami, Ontario; nestled in the heartland of the Near North. It is easily accessible to the mainland yet is very private and peaceful. It’s a playground of unspoiled pine forests, hundreds of secluded islands, and crystal clear water. This enchanting region appeals to people of all ages.

Experience Required:

Previous experience is not required. Upon your arrival, your “captain” will be given a houseboat orientation. This will consist of familiarization with the lake (assisted by the map provided) and hands-on instruction in driving the houseboat. The features of the houseboat will be explained including the operation of the depth sounders. You will also be shown how to anchor and de/anchor the houseboat. We recommend that you bring along your own fishing boat and motor or canoe to tow behind (we also provide rentals). You must be 25 years of age or older and hold a valid driver’s license to drive the houseboat.


You do not require a boating license (Pleasure Craft Operator Card) to rent a houseboat. Prior to departure you will be provided a safety checklist for review. Be sure to ask any questions if you are not sure. You will be issued a temporary license that is good for your trip. You will need to keep this document readily available if request by officials.

If you wish to obtain your Pleasure Craft Operator Card you can do so on line. For more details:
