Fishing, Boating & Canoeing

Mountain Lake is a lake trout lake and is great for bass fishing in season. Spring fishing is particularly good. Mountain Lake also flows directly into Horseshoe Lake and then into the Gull River at the Minden White Water Preserve. Ogopogo is the only Resort with direct water access to the Preserve. The area is very scenic – great for a canoe-hike combination.

Relaxation time You can't control the weather so it was a cool weekend. We have enjoyed this resort before and are never disappointed. It is small and quiet. There are a lot of outdoor toys for activities of all ages. The cottages are small, but cozy. I am grateful not to have to drag linens with me but I prefer soft pillows rather than the hard pillows supplied. The coffee maker was not properly cleaned, but other than that all was great. If you decide to go out for breakfast the Heather Lodge is close by, reasonable and absolutely amazing!

Relaxing, soul-nurturing immersion in beauty and nature surrounding us Loved the cottage, the view of the lake, the countryside, the friendliness and helpfulness of Katherine and Todd. An added bonus was meeting wonderful people who happened to be enjoying their stay as well.

Just like home Katherine & Todd were very hospitable and generous with helping us plan our stay in the area. Todd met us at the car and transported our luggage to the cabin via snowmobile & toboggans. My daughter and I went snowshoeing on the lake, made a nighttime fire and enjoyed so many other activities in the area. The cottage was warm and clean and was just perfect for 2 people getting away for a winter holiday. I'd love to stay at Ogopogo again, we were very sad to leave!

A great winter getaway We were there for three nights in a 2 bedroom cottage. The location is handy to several activities and restaurants. The cabin was immaculate and the kitchen very well equipped. The owners were very pleasant and helpful. Covid protocols were well followed We will definitely go back.

Hidden Gem We spent 3 nights in a 3 bedroom cottage in January. The resort is immaculate and the owners go above and beyond to look after their guests. The cottage was spotless and well equipped. The kids were occupied from dawn to dusk skating on the rink, whipping down the toboggan hill and catching trout and walleye. Hands down the best resort we’ve ever stayed at, a real hidden gem! Thank you to Todd and Katherine for starting a new tradition for our family, we will be back!

Winter stay at Ogopogo We were impressed at how well the kitchen was equipped. The cabin was very clean. The Staff was always super friendly and helpful. Close to Sir Sam Skiing. We enjoyed tobogganing and the outdoor fire pit.

A Fantastic Place at the Best Price The setting was lovely, the cottages were very clean and well maintained, and the owners are great people. The easy access to the lake and boats was easily the best part, but it was also nice being close to the many towns and trails we wanted to visit. This is both the most affordable and the nicest place we have lodged and would definitely go again.
