Anika’s Amikoweesh was created to give guests simple and reasonably priced wilderness camping experiences on the world famous Lac Seul near Sioux Lookout, Ontario. You do basically everything on your own; support is optional.
The rustic camp is located at one of the most ideal locations in Northwestern Ontario. The owner, elder Russell Chisel of Lac Seul First Nation, personally selected this location from his years “growing up on the trap line” in the Lac Seul area as a child. The camp’s “first owner” still frequents the camp as one of his homes is located on site: a large amikoweesh (Ojibway for beaver house). The camp is named after his niece, Anika who often enjoys her summers at the camp.
A natural south extending peninsula, the camp provides picturesque sunrises and sunsets with full exposure to western winds that keep mosquitos away. Presently the camp offers 3 traditional “prospector” tents with a small kitchen cabin. There is an outhouse and shower areas.
There is great fishing along with great bird and animal viewing is right on location. Bald eagles and other large birds visit the camp daily. The regionally noted Pelican Falls, a very significant historic First Nation gathering site for thousands of years, is a short boat ride away. A floating trampoline and 2 sand beaches, provide a fun summer experience for all ages and there is a dock for your boat.
Only a 10 minute boat ride from Hudson, Ontario, they have excellent reception to the nearby cell tower allowing contact with the world at the guests’ discretion.
The great location of the camp on Lac Seul provides the opportunity to explore the Boreal Forest and its beauty, ruggedness, and mysteries. Guests will also have a range of support and advice for their own personal desired experiences and of course the fishing on Lac Seul is world renowed for catching trophy Walleye, Muskie and Northern Pike .
