: Resorts on Eagle Lake, Ontario
01-17-2005, 06:15 PM
I was looking for a resort on Eagle Lake for my family to vacation this summer and came across Birch Dale resort. It looked like a nice place and I was wondering if anyone had any comments on either Birch Dale or any other resorts on Eagle Lake. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, all I know is that Eagle lake has some very big fish in it. I hope you find some good lodging. Have a good one, Kingfisher
Take a look at Andy Myer's Lodge, great place , great staff , great fishing.

check out temple bay lodge
Birchdale is a good lodge. They are right across the bay from Andy Meyers, but a lot less money. It is much more workable for the family thing.
I just booked Cedar Point Lodge for the 2nd year in a row.
Honestly, I can't believe how great this place was. Now I have
not been to Canada before, but I do vacation in MN 2 weeks a year for the past 10 and have a pretty good idea of what makes a good resort.
Can't say anything about the other lakes, but Pat at Cedar Point runs a great lodge. At least worth a look on the web. No matter what, everyone seems to say Eagle is a tremendous lake.
We stay at Deer Trail Lodge. Reasonable family and group rates. Very nice cabins and comfortable boats. Rich & Ruth are very helpful, down to earth people. Hate to give away a secert spot, but I'll share this one! Their site is on web.

i stayed there in the mid 90's Ernie and Lynn have a very nice place and they were very reasonable in cost, the boats and motors were all in good shape as were the cabins.

I would try sportsmens lodge. It is right on the boarder of the west arm and the vermillion bay. The rates are lower than andy myers and Jim and Cindy do all they can to make your visit enjoyable. Plus Herbie tells his clints to watch for the guide who Jim and Cindy use. He's a local and has fished the lake all his life. I got a 52.5"er only 10min from there camp. There number is (807) 227-5318

there are many good operations on eagle lake offering many diff. options,pricing stuctures,and services offered.everyone has their niche and customers.we have not grown every year since 1994 without providing something no else is in service,information provided,and experience.
statements like you have just made only make you look like you have no clue as what you are talking about and anyone you really knows what is going on when it comes to musky fishing knows better than to believe bull like that.what a joke!let's compare pic's over the last 10 years,yours,any guides on eagle,or any resort and i never talk the talk unless i can walk the walk.oh,and i post my real name.
just because i didn't give you all the info you expected to get when you walked in looking for it while staying someplace else is no reason to post false information.

i just stopped by and have to comment.i am lucky enough to be able to go to canada 2-3 times a season,have fished all over and eagle lake is one of my regular stops.i have stayed at diff resorts the past 15 years including several of the above mentioned and my experience is you get what you pay for and those that are the same as far as services,accom,equip.,etc. are in the same ballpark price wise and those that are less you can expect a bit less someplace,somewhere along the line.
while i have not been disappointed at any destination on eagle last season we stayed at andy myers as part of a group and in all my travels have not seen the effort by not only steve (who seemingly runs on energizers making sure everyone is getting thier trips and fishing information for the day/week lined up)but also his staff to make sure we were well taken care of. to make a statement that he would tell his guests to follow another guide around is ludicrus especially when aml has the largest guide staff with the best equip. on that side of the lake (they were excellent),some of the best pro's in the country are on his fishing instruction program,and steve himself runs fishing seminars in the lodge.we are going back.

Well run camp that is very clean and good boats and motors.

Yes there are many good lodges and many big fish in Eagle Lake. Look around & compare the recommendations. When I go there I stay at Waldhof Bay Lodge. Good service, good facilities at a good price. www.waldhofbaylodge.com. Happy fishing!

Been looking at going to eagle sometime. Will be taking my family also. Does eagle have a good population of northern pike, two to four pounds, to keep the kids happy?

I'VE BEEN TO BOTH IN THE LAST 3 YEARS.PRICE IS ABOUT 30.00 PER WEEK DIFF,5.00 A DAY,AT LEAST FOR THE MEAL PLAN BUT THE SERVICE,ATTITUDE TOWARDS US,STAFF,AND INFORMATION FREELY GIVEN WHETHER YOU'RE GUIDED OR NOT IS WORTH 10 TIMES THAT AT AML.AND IT'S ALL YOU CAN EAT.

i've been to andy myers lodge 4 times,fished with steve back in wisc years ago too,his peers in the industry and customers all know him and his way of doing things as innovative and pioneering.
you can't go wrong staying there either, his camp and staff run the same way.i've never not gotten my moneys worth.

Stickboy.....ya kinda hit a nerve with that comment! While I can guaratee that any guide (and most anglers) will pay attention to who is fishing where and possibly investigate at a later date (at least the ones with some courtesy)it is unlikely that big Steve is monitoring the whereabouts of some other guide (most of which are "legends in their own minds" anyways). But giving credit where credit is due, congrats on your 50"+ musky. I think it does give you the right to "walk the walk"....musky fishing isn't about who has the most pics anyways.
Resorts on Eagle Lake....lots of good ones....pick the one and people you are most comfortable with. Lots of good water....none of them have a monopoly on good fishing.
Not that I really care what lodge someone goes to, but don't lie. I know, Andy Meyer's is the best thing since sliced bread and the other lodges are jealous, I've heard it all before. According to their websites, Andy Meyer's Lodge would cost a family of four with two young kids $1767 for a week on the housekeeping package. Birchdale would be $750 for the week. Most people with kids do housekeeping packages, we know what our kids like to eat and don't really want to pay for food that they won't touch. I believe $1017 comes out to a little more than the $5 a day you claim.

I've stayed at Sportsman and Jim and Cindy treated me very well.
I don't use guides so it matters very little to me who thinks what.
Go to Eagle and have fun,make sure the kids get a trip they will remember for a lifetime!

we stayed at andy myers lodge last june and the kids caught lots of pike,bass,and some walleyes right off the dock.a young girl caught a 53" muskie right out in front while fishing for walleyes with steves boy danny.
the kids loved the seminars and attention given to them by steve and his guides.the staff was excellent as was the food and service.we don't fish alot and were new to the lake so we did 3 days with guides and caught enough fish that the next day we just pretty much relaxed and the kids fished off the dock.after supper we would just cast spinners and tpwater baits at the weeds near camp and caught pike and bass.we had a ball and i'd recommend them to anyone looking for a good trip.

Another vote for Herbies at Andy Myers Lodge. You will not have a problem. Troy Spilde
