Wilderness...YES, rugged...NO, we were pampered by all the personnel that works for Abbey and Doris at Errington's Wilderness Island Resort. Meals are absolutely amazing, the view is breath taking, accommodation can be in the lodge or in a cabin. Boats are provided, and you can even reserve a fishing guide, to help you along. we will definitely be returning.

Why do you feel like you've come back home, when you've never been here? We traveled in on a float plane and landed to a welcoming party that included the loving yellow lab Nikita who seemed to say "What took you so long to get here?" as she wagged her way into our hearts. She was also there on the... More

My wife was not really interested in going fishing with me to Errington's Wilderness Island. After our stay in August 2013, she has changed her mind and has indicated that she would be more than willing to come back to the resort. The fishing was terrific but the service and food was outstanding. Al Errington and his staff were very... More

Suites over cabins is always a debate. The cabins are more secluded, the suites are closer to the lodge and services. Both cabins and suites are very comfortable and have great views of Lake Wabatongushi. More

If there is one Ontario fishing resort to go to, this would be my choice. One of two resorts on 20-plus-mile-long Lake Wabatongushi, we climbed off the Algoma Central train to be met by owner Al Errington and crew, who quickly ferried us across the water to our lodge located on an island. In the few minutes it took to... More

Regarding mosquitoes and blackflies, we really don't have much. Mosquitoes for an hour or so just a dusk. Blackflies are annoying for about a week in early June. We don't have much for blackflies partially because we are at the top of the Canadian Shield on the divide between Hudson Bay and Lake Superior, so very few springs which blackflies... More

We have waited over 20 years to finally continue on up the line to Errington's. We went not knowing what to expect but were thinking oh, probably tourist trap. What a great surprise! We were met and promptly "pontooned" to the island by Al (owner and now friend). We were shown to rooms that, tho small, were simply splendid. Clean... More

Four old friends spent 4 nights and 3 days of fishing at Errington's. The fishing for pickerel (walleye) and pike was excellent...during the stay we caught and released approx. 80 fish. The largest pickerel was 20 1/2" with many in the 16 - 18" range. Largest pike was 28", with a number just slightly smaller. The boats supplied were large... More
