Have been going to Errington's Wilderness Island Resort for 8 years. Reasons to go back are great staff, excellent food, rustic clean rooms, and fishing has been exceptional for walleyes and N. Pike. Cabins are comfortable with excellent views of the lake. Good variety of menu items and a person won't go hungry. Shore lunches are fresh walleye with a... More

If you can't relax here...you can't relax. Beautiful surrounding and excellent staff....Tasty meals,you won't be hungry. We drove to Hawks Junction and caught the train from there.

Had another great visit to the Errington's fine establishment. This place is a well run family operation with comfortable and clean accomodations, great food in an absolutely beautiful and natural environment. On this trip caught plenty of walleye and pike (as usual), saw bears, otters, beavers, bald eagles and ospreys. We will be back again next year.

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
