Golden Eagle Camp sits along the shores of Sydney Creek, which serves as a tributary of the Montreal River. As one of Northern Ontario's wilderness camps, Golden Eagle Camp is fairly easy to find. It is just off Highway 66 near Elk Lake and sits between Sudbury and Timmins. The camp sits about 4.5 hours from Toronto making it an easy drive from many places.

Guests stay in one of the nine cabins all of which feature running hot and cold water, full kitchens, refrigerators and appliances. Porches offer sitting areas and a BBQ. Bathrooms include a sink, shower, and toilet. Most cabins offer wood heat, but a few have gas heating. The additional housing includes the Chalet, which is an A-frame cottage with a lot of charm. There is one outpost, which is half an hour from Golden Eagle Camp, aptly named Cougar's Cover Outpost. This is a rustic facility with no electricity or running water. It is simply a one room cabin with four bunk beds.

Overall, the housing here is rustic, clean and comfortable.

Fishing with Golden Eagle Camp

Sydney Creek and many of the surrounding lakes offer outstanding fishing for Walleye, Northern Pike, and Smallmouth Bass. Fish range in size from small to trophy-sized. Sydney Creek is part of a large river system that offers fishermen a lot of variety. Expect to find runs and riffles, underwater structures, coves, and weedy beds made for fishing. There are plenty of hot-spots for everyone and every style of fishing. Many fishermen find success with a fly rod or spin casting from the boats or trolling. There is even an opportunity for jigging.

Boat options include 14' -16' boats all with seats. Some offer flat-bottom platforms, and others are regular bottomed boats. The deluxe boats have fish finders and electric trolling motors. There is also a variety of motors that range from 15-hp-30hp.

The local area offers many lakes from which fishermen can choose. Some offer stock fishing for brook trout and others are home to huge populations of Smallmouth Bass. Most lakes have nice populations of Walleye and Northern Pike.
