Big Bear Camp

23 Reviews - TripAdvisor® Traveler Rating
Big Bear Camp
  • Approximate Cost:
    6 - 7 Days: $250 to $500 Per Person
  • Access: Drive In Camp

The camp is located minutes off Highway 101 (Southwest of Timmins in the Boreal Forest) on the northern tip of 22-mile long Horwood Lake. In case you’re wondering, that’s a pretty big lake. In fact, most fishing camps located in the interior of Ontario are situated on lakes no more than 5-10 miles long. This obviously means more fishing opportunities and thankfully Horwood Lake also has great weed beds, rocky shores, and sand coves…all great in their own way for targeting Northern Pike, Walleye, Jumbo Perch, and Whitefish. Big Bear Camp also offers hunting for Black Bear and Moose, and though not hunted you can hear or see the occasional wolf at the camp as well.
