Beaverland Camp: A Special Place on the Marten River
“Owners Lori and Mike are grateful to share their little peace of heaven with their guests year-round, and they will certainly make you feel like part of their family.”
Beaverland Camp is situated on the shores of the Marten River system just less than 40 minutes north of North Bay. The Camp was built in the 1900’s originally as a logging camp, but later became a fishing camp in the 1920s.
Upon visiting the camp office today, you will step back in time as you see some of the history including mounted trophy fish, photo albums with snap shots from the past, the first camp cash register, and even an old chainsaw from the logging days.
Checking in to the Camp
The Camp has 14 cozy cottages each equipped with a refrigerator, microwave oven, propane stove, coffee maker, toaster, pots, pans, utensils and more. Each cottage has it’s own bathroom including a shower. In addition, Beaverland Camp offers fully accessible cottages with wheel-in showers.
There are many docks lining the shores of the camp to accommodate your own fishing vessel. Boat rentals are also available. The very unique Marten River system is a gateway to exploring several lakes with a variety of fish species including: walleye, lake trout, perch, smallmouth bass, northern pike, and more. Mike and Lori are both avid anglers and can provide guests with a detailed map with their hot spots, as well as offer advice about navigating this scenic and winding water system.
There are many activities to partake in throughout the year at Beaverland Camp. Anglers travel from near and far during spring, summer, and fall to take advantage of the open water fishing opportunities on the river and connecting lakes. There is a private sandy beach along on site and canoe rentals if you’d like to go exploring in this beautiful area from the water. Spectacular sunsets can be experienced right from the shoreline at the camp or even from your own screened in porch.
If you love to get out and explore nature on foot, there are hiking trails and Kenny Forest Provincial Park is also located nearby. There is a horse shoe pit as well as a communal fire pit where guests gather in the evenings to relax and visit. There’s nothing quite like finishing off a day spent outdoors with the sounds and aroma from a crackling campfire.
Wildlife is abundant with bald eagles and moose frequenting the area providing great photography opportunities. There is a recreation hall just across from the office with the original fireplace along with some games, cozy seating, and the only television in the camp. Satellite TV is available in the rec hall along with a DVD and VHS player.
Lori and Mike happily welcome ATV enthusiasts throughout the year, as well as snowmobilers in the wintertime. There are endless trails to ride on and explore nature at it’s finest. The trail systems offer plenty of room to roam with routes leading to Sudbury, New Liskeard, and Quebec. Ice fishing is a popular wintertime activity on the back lakes in the area. Be sure to chat with Mike and Lori about the best places to go!
A Camp for Everyone
A family-oriented camp, Lori and Mike have not forgotten about our furry friends. Pets are allowed at Beaverland Camp.
In addition to hosting families and friends on vacation, meetings, team building events, spiritual retreats, small conferences, and family reunions are also offered at the camp. For those looking to explore the area, there are nearby attractions including Science North in Sudbury, the Waterfront Carousel in North Bay, and the Chief Commanda Cruise on Lake Nipissing.
You’ll find all that and much more at Beaverland Camp!
