A warm welcome awaits you...

Welcome Lodge is located in the Canadian shield which boasts rugged rock formations, majestic pine trees and beautiful scenery. All of the cottages overlook the sheltered waters of the West Arm which provides the perfect setting for both fishermen and families alike.  Thousands of acres of crown land and park with nature and hiking trails, leads to privacy and serenity abound.

The miles of sheltered waterways of the West Arm are a fisherman's delight, even when the weather refuses to cooperate. The West Arm, Lake Nipissing is well known for their pickerel (walleye), bass, northern pike, muskie, whitefish and pan fish. As all are easily accessible from Welcome Lodge, the choice is yours. With a variety of quality boats and motors, gas, and fresh live bait, we can cater to all your fishing needs. A launching ramp and excellent docking facilities are available for those who wish to bring their own boats.

In addition to swimming, water lovers can enjoy the use of boats, canoes, paddle boats and kayaks. For the naturalist, whether enjoying the waterways or trekking the miles of forest, exploration is unlimited.
