Located right on the shore of beautiful Dog Lake, Ernie’s Cottages and Campground has everything the fishing enthusiast could possibly need. There are boats and motors available to rent, 2 boat launches, gas pumps at the water, ample docking space, a bait shop and fish cleaning facility. There is also a guide service, with the option of traveling to remote lakes. We also have canoe rentals.

The fishing is outstanding on Dog Lake. With over 300 miles of shoreline, Dog Lake is a huge, sprawling body of water that plays host to several species of fish.  Walleye, Northern Pike, Jumbo Perch, Lake Trout and small Mouth Bass can all be found here.

When the fish aren’t biting (which of course they always are) Ernie’s Restaurant offers up the ideal distraction. Licensed by the L.C.B.O., and with the best burgers you’ll ever eat, it’s the perfect place to swap stories.  We’ve got a pool table and satellite T.V.  It’s also your location for, confectioneries and the take-out liquor store.
