Default Solo trip suggestions?

I'm recently semi retired, live near Madison, WI and would like to spend a couple weeks in NW Ontario fishing with my black lab during the 2017 season. Friends aren't able to commit to more than a week and I want to spend more time. Looking for a place that has a remote feel, probably drive to or boat in, budget minded. Camping is also a possibility. Interested in something like o'Sullivan's, especially their outpost, but they don't allow dogs. Focus is walleye and northern. Have fished Nungesser in the past and enjoyed it very much. I've read through many posts, but still looking. Please send a personal message if you prefer. Thanks!

Our favorite lodge is Evergreen Lodge in Ear Falls.
This lodge is on Lac Seul and I have seen people bring their dogs up with them. You just need to clean up after your dog of course.
This lodge has cabins / of various sizes and I think you'll be happy here.
Give Pat a call - she is very nice.

Default x 2 on Cedar Lake Lodge

Al runs a nice clean camp, with plenty of areas for your dog....Pro1800 is right that the Cedar Lake chain is also a great fishery, with smaller (so to speak) bays that are protected enough to fish most days (even with a strong wind) and easy to navigate by yourself.

It is a bummer about O'sullivan not allowing dogs, I was looking at staying there and had to rule it out too.

There is an outfitter on the twin lakes in nakina who allows dogs I believe. Mike borger posted a report on fall walleye and speck fishing plus his partner did some grouse hunting. Walleye and pike right on twin lakes, other fishing available (inc. specs) at back lakes. Think it was called twin lakes resort. I Tried booking there, they allowed dogs (but maybe only in hunting season?) but they were full.

Ended up at Pasha Lake. No significant fishing on the lake there, but countless lakes to fish in the surrounding area. The owner is helpful and KNOWLEDGEABLE about the area! There is a camping area and if you camp you have access to the lodge that has bathrooms with showers. A trip there does involve some driving to the back lakes daily, again fishing right at the lodge is not that good, just be aware of that.

When I was there the other guys in camp were friendly. Lots hang out at the lodge to bs/have a drink after dark. Occasionally, there are groups with odd number who open to having someone join them to avoid "3 in a boat".

Default Solo trip help follow up

Thanks for the replies! I'm wondering if there may be more suggestions out there. Especially for any places with a little more "elbow room" between cabins, maybe your own dock type of thing. Really want to have a remote feel/privacy. It's such a huge, wonderful area up there.....you are a great source of information. I've learned a lot from you in the time I've spent reading on here. Greatly appreciate your help.

Hard finding those options.you mentiibed your on a budget.what is your budget.sounds like your looking for a private cabin.those dont come cheap or might not allow dogs either.the camp i mentiond (cedar lake lodge )is about the most freedom you will get.100 acres.most camps dont have docks for each cabin.

Looked at cedar lake lodge some more. I see they have an outpost cabin. does anyone have any experience with it?

Prov1800: budget is in the range of cedar lake. Maybe up to $650 a week. Just want to feel like I'm away from it all-Wilderness Type experience. Thanks again.

That outpost is a fairly large cabin on a island half way toward main lodge.its has power.pretty bushy and another private cabin on the other end of the island (friends of mine)bit of a stairway to cabin.would be alright if you wanted more solitude.
