We had reached out to the Lodge after our expected wedding venue had fallen through. Even before deciding to work with Rock Island Lodge for our event, David spent so much time with us over the phone and through email to send his recommendations. His willingness to share his time and his expertise in the area and the local amenities was above and beyond. Without his help, our dream wedding would never have come to fruition. The location is an experience unlike any other. Lake Superior, in our opinion, is one of the most beautiful places in the Country and Rock Island Lodge is the place to enjoy it. We had rented the Voyageur canoe for the day and our guide was a lot of fun and a joy to be around. We can't wait to go back!

We had an amazing stay and experience at Rock Island Lodge!!! The landscape is unbeatable as you have beach access to both Lake Superior and the Michipicoten river. Fire pits every night and a clean quiet room to go back to. We had the most amazing guide for our kayaking adventure. Callie was able to assess our groups skill set and take us on a perfect day adventure. The food was great, accommodating a vegetarian diet. I would highly recommend this place to stay, enjoy and explore the beauty of a Northern Ontario. Can't wait to go back!

We thoroughly enjoyed the Lodge,the area and the hospitality. It was such a wonderful find in beautiful northern Ontario. We arrived later in the evening and our Geoderm tent was ready for us as well as a bonfire. The next morning we went on a scenic canoe ride down the river. We would love to return post Covid when more of it is open but we still enjoyed what we had.

When we first arrived, we were greeted by staff who gave us a full tour of the property. The scenery is stunning and the lodge itself is built into the rock on the shore of Lake Superior. We went for Wilderness First Aid and were provided with delicious meals throughout the course. David (owner) shared some stories with our group about Lake Superior and Michipicoten Island. It is a beautiful location at the mouth of the Michipicoten River. Staff are friendly, helpful and make you feel like you are at home. We cannot wait to go back.

The setting is gorgeous! The lodge is very comfortable. The food is basic, but good. A really lovely pot of tea in the morning, and very good oatmeal. Reading lamps on both sides of the bed would be an excellent addition.
