Another year (23rd I believe) at Beaverland! Cabins are reasonable priced and comfortable. We always catch enough fish to feed 6-10 people two times on our trip and usually bring some home. Camp owners are friendly and helpful. We go for walleye but catch pike, catfish, perch, bass also. Note the fish picture are all good eaters, but largest was almost 27” which makes the others look smaller than they are.

We stayed at Beaverland Camp for 4 days over the February long weekend with ice fishing as a main activity. I discovered this place by browsing the web and since the beginning, Dorothy was the most pleasant lady to talk to. Her and her husband Albert showed us warm hospitality since our arrival till the departure. We stayed at the Lakeside Cottage, which consists of a living room w/kitchenette, bathroom and a bedroom with a queen size bed and one single bed. They are both heated by two separate furnice units, the heat was sufficient even during freezing nights. The kitchen has a stove, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, pots and pans, enough utencils, plates, cups etc.... To my surprise everything was very clean, which I appreciate, since my experience with cottage rentals varies. There is no TV or radio in the cabin, but the high speed internet works perfectly throughout the whole camp for those who need to stay in touch. However, there is a recreational hall - a large log house, which has a satelite TV, DVD player, VCR, (and a piano) and is available for use at any time. The camp was fairly quiet at that time since there are only 3 winterized cottages. The most important - ice fishing - was great. Every morning (early) Al drove my husband and son on his snowmobile to the ice fishing hut, nice and comfortable, heated by a wood burning stove, gave them minnows or whatever they needed, some time stayed and fished as well. The fish harvest totalled to a huge walleye cought by our 10-year old son, and variety of whitefish and lake trout. We left Beaverland satisfied, with great impression, good memories of the "old fashioned hospitality"!

While driving along Highway #11, about forty-five kilometres north of the city of North Bay Ontario, you will come across a sign marking the turn off for Beaverland Road. Make the turn, and after a short drive along the relatively narrow gravel road, you will arrive in Beaverland Camp.

Nestled within the Nipissing Crown Game Preserve, Beaverland Camp began life in 1901 as a logging camp, until being transformed into a fishing lodge by George Hughes in 1927. Needless to say, it’s been many years since this area has seen any logging activity, and fortunately the loggers missed a few, because it’s still possible to find some small groves of the magnificent 300 year old white pines, that once covered much of the area.

While the Camp has undergone a number of changes over the years, the relaxed atmosphere and pace of Camp life has remained relatively unchanged, and although they have been updated, several of the original 1901 buildings and cabins are still in service. Change comes slowly to Beaverland Camp -which suits me and many other repeat guests just fine.

That said, one of the most significant and forward thinking changes has been the conversion of two cabins into fully handicap accessible units. Other lodges and camps should take note and follow Beaverland's lead, because they are well ahead of the curve when it comes to accommodating, and making all of their guests feel welcome.

When you arrive in the spring, just after walleye season opens, the Camp has a definite “old time” fish camp feel to it, and although usually booked at or near capacity, it never seems crowded. The only place that attracts a crowd of any kind is the screened in fish cleaning hut.

In July and August, families on their summer holidays will have replaced most of the hard-core fishermen. I have visited with my family during the summer months on several occasions, and always found plenty to do in and around Camp to keep everyone occupied. You can take your family fishing, on a canoe trip along the river, or just pack a lunch and visit one of many great picnic/swimming locations scattered throughout the water system.

If you visit in early August, load everyone into a boat and head over to Pickerel Island for some wild blueberry picking. There are usually plenty to go around, and they will certainly take the taste of your morning cereal or pancakes up a notch or two.

Although the Camp is located on the Marten River, guests have direct water access to four lakes. “Big” and “Little” Marten Lakes both offer very good lake trout, walleye and small mouth bass fishing. Bruce Lake consistently produces good numbers of walleye together with pike and bass, and last, but certainly not least, McPhee Lake. While McPhee can be a bit finicky at times, when it turns on it is definitely the place to be for both numbers, and trophy size walleye. There is also good fishing for walleye on the river, both up and downstream from Camp.

If you’re interested in doing some exploring off the main water system, there is easy road access to Wicksteed Lake, a large man made lake that has decent pike fishing, and walleye in good numbers. From Bruce Lake, it’s a relatively short portage into O’Shea Lake. O’Shea has been hailed as one of the top places in Ontario to fish for small mouth bass, and I can tell you from experience, you will not be disappointed. The Camp keeps a canoe on the lake for their guests, so all you need take along is your rod and reel, some live bait, and/or a pocket full of jig heads and crayfish coloured grubs.

Accommodations are either in one of many clean and well-maintained cabins scattered over the 10½ acre grounds, or in one of two motel style units, that feature screened in porches, and a great view of the river. All the cabins/units are set up for housekeeping, and come fully equipped with fridges, stoves, pots, pans dishes, and pretty much everything you will need to prepare your meals, including propane BBQ’s. Most have indoor plumbing, and for those few that don’t, there are common shower and washroom facilities very close at hand.

Once you have figured out the cost of a trip to Beaverland Camp you are going to be in for a pleasant surprise. Our seven day trip in 2014 cost each member of our ten person group $320, including food. While your costs will vary, depending on your choice of accommodation, the size of your group, boat and motor rentals and the like, all in all you will be hard pressed to find better value.

I have been returning to Beaverland Camp together with a group of friends and family for forty consecutive years, and if all goes well, we will be heading back again this spring. By any measure it’s a long time to be going back to the same place, so you might be inclined to ask - why Beaverland?

For some, it’s the fishing and a chance to leave the world behind for a few days. Others enjoy the companionship, and the opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends. Or perhaps it’s remembering that perfectly still evening as you quietly pulled up to the dock just as the sun was setting, and got a faint whiff of someone’s wood burning stove, while being serenaded by a chorus of frogs and crickets.

When I began writing this piece I asked some of the current members of our crew to reflect on, and tell me what keeps drawing them back year after year, and without a doubt the best reason of all was:

“I love the chance it gives me to go fishing with my dad.”

And that. in my view captures the essence of what Beaverland Camp is all about.

Couldnt ask for a more hospitable friendly place. Very well maintained and a very kid friendly cottage camp with many things for the kids to do in safety. Great little beach as well which is really nice. Fishing is great, a total package for a family to vacation.

Dorothy and Albert are great friendly hosts and usually try their best to make everyone happy, highly reccommend it!!!

During our time at Beaverland Camp it was -25 during the night, but beautiful during the day. We were welcomed into the lodge by owners Al and Dorothy for games, food, warm drinks, and the hockey games. During the day we hiked the trails, snowboarded down the pipeline, and enjoyed the company of our family and new friends. Beaverland camp is a great getaway anytime of the year, I hope to come back this coming summer!

We decided to head north for a snowmobiling/ice fishing trip. I looked on the internet and found this place. The minute I called and talked to Albert and Dorothy I knew it was going to be perfect. The prices were completely reasonable. I was worried it would be too rustic when I heard the price, so lets just say I was pleasantly surprised when we got there.
I had joked with Albert on the phone about a 'guarantee of catching a fish'. When we arrived Albert handed us a nice fish he had just caught that day...we arrived fairly late and hadn't eaten so we cooked it up for dinner...perfect.
It is a beautiful piece of property surrounded by lakes and forests....breathtaking views everywhere we went. The snowmobile/ATV trails are easily accessible from the camp. You could do a day ride to Sudbury or Quebec. Albert took us out on a tour one day and showed us some highlights of the area. We used his ice huts for fishing. If the fishing is not good one place, he will drag it to another. He brought us fresh bait and sat and fished with us a for a bit a couple of days. He has been in this area for quite some time and really has alot of knowledge he willingly shared with us.
We stayed in one of the Lakeside cottages. Impeckably clean !! It was very cold at night so I was worried about a cottage not being warm enough. Honestly we slept with a very thin sheet as it was unbelievably warm, and we had to turn the heat off at night. He has a unique system set up for heat that works very well. There were 3 of us on the trip. It was very spacious with a Queen bed and single bed in one room and a single bed and pull out couch in the main living area, along with a fully equipped kitchen, BBQ, and a screened porch over-looking the river. They provide the bedding so you only have to bring your clothes and food. There is shampoo, soap and cream rinse in the bathroom, but I don't think there was a hairdryer. There are several cottages along the river, all with excellent views. The grounds are neat and tidy and well kept. They have boat & motor rentals, a swiming area, laundromat, playground, paddle boats, ice, library, games room and offer lake tours.
Albert and Dorothy treated us like royalty and they made us feel like we were family. I would not hesitate to return here and hope to visit again this summer.
I must say, I really debated whether or not to write a review because I wanted to keep this secret to myself. It was a little bit of heaven, but I owe it to them to let others know how great it was, and what a great job they have done.
Kudos Albert and Dorthy on your gem !!

Dianne, Trevor & Tyler

I have stayed at this camp with family and with friends 5 times since 2013 and I have always been happy with the friendly service and clean cottages until this time.
My family and I rented 3 cottages for 2 nights.
On my way home this morning I received a very rude call from the owner of the camp accusing me of not cleaning the cottages to her standards before we left. I was shocked, I have never been accused of this anywhere I have ever stayed.
I mistakenly left 2 grocery bags of beer and cooler cans in the porch, a large 1/4 filled bag of garbage in one cottage (because I didn't want to throw out a bag that was only 1/4 full), and we left a small amount of dishes in two of the sinks. We didn't sweep and mop the floors because the check out time is 9 am and we just didn't have time.
What's worse, is she accused us of stealing the tea towels from one cottage. My 8 year old grand-daughter accidentally packed them up when she was helping to clean up. I offered to bring them back and was rudely told that we could "keep them if you need them that bad".
I assume some minor clean up is to be expected when patrons leave. I was treated very badly and, even though I apologized to her and tried to respond to her pleasantly, she told me they are "not interested" in having us back. Terrible customer treatment!

We had been to Beaverland several times , and thought this year we would change it up, It was terrible! we all found ourselves sitting around the camp fire saying lets go to Beaverland!! We cut our trip short, and immediately came home to book our stay. We are so excited to go back, We love the cabins , rustic , simple. Love the other friendly families there,My husband loves the fishing, We adore the Rustic rec center and the little general store. When you go to Beaverland you actually get a vacation,not commercial, fun, relaxing a true gem. Kids running around together just like it is supposed to be. I hope they never change it. Cant wait!!!

I am from Scotland and thought we had some of the most stunning scenery in the world, that was until I visited beaverland! Utterly picturesque with great weather (at least in the summer months when we were there) and a variety of wildlife including chipmunks, snapping turtles, beavers, loon ducks to name but a few. Unfortunately we didn't see any bears except the exceptionally friendly newfoundland dog on site who done a very good impression of a friendly bear. Don't think twice about booking here, you won't regret it!
