It's morning time and the echo of loons singing out can be heard across the picture painted dawn. As the sun rises for another adventurous day at Wolseley Lodge you will find many things to do at Ontario's premier fishing destination. Fish, swim, hike or canoe - our area offers it all.
Established in 1928, Wolseley Lodge has a long tradition of great outdoor tourism. It is located on the French River, well known to be a prime fishing location as seen on FISH.TV. Our docks can accommodate float planes so it is possible to fly in for your fishing trip or charter a trip to a remote lake. In the evening you may choose to play some pool, darts, watch a video in the main lodge or get comfortable around the nightly campfire. Guests will enjoy our Complimentary Fish Fry on Monday evenings during summer.
Wolseley Lodge at the French River is just 3.5 hours north of Toronto. We offer overnight B&B rooms and 16 clean and comfortable cabins ranging in size from 1 to 4 bedrooms. Originally built in 1928, we have made every effort to maintain the rustic charm of the lodge. Some cabins are of nicely styled log construction while having the services that make your holiday comfortable and convenient. We are a pet friendly resort and we welcome responsible pet owners. NOTE - Cabins 6 and 8 are not available to guests with pets, while all other 14 cabins are pet friendly.
The French River is more like a chain of lakes connected by rapids. In these lakes you find many islands, bays and channels. You will find fishing heaven at Wolseley Bay and the French River; more than 95% of the shoreline is undeveloped and protected as a Provincial Waterway Park. You can fish for Walleye, Muskie, Northern Pike, Small Mouth Bass, Large Mouth Bass as well as Perch, Sunfish, Rock Bass and Crappies. Always be prepared for a big one; Muskie over 50'' and Walleye over 30'' get caught every year. More unusual species such as Sturgeon, Channel Catfish or Whitefish are also found in the French River.
There are also many nature adventures waiting for you at Wolseley Bay and the French River: hiking, swimming, tubing, historic sites or just cruising on our Pontoon boats and enjoying the beauty of nature. Make sure to bring your camera. There are many scenic views for photographers, artists, birding and hiking.
