A Wilderness Escape Like No Other

Step into a world of angler’s paradise nestled on the far west end of the expansive 43,860-acre lake. Black Bear Lodge stands as a beacon of rustic authenticity, harking back to its roots since 1950. As one of only two lodges on this breathtaking stretch of water, we offer a unique and exclusive experience that marries unparalleled trophy fishing with an unyielding commitment to preserving our lodge’s nostalgic charm.

Rustic Charm and Modern Comforts

Black Bear Lodge is a sanctuary that bridges the past and the present. Experience the best of both worlds in our log cabins. Enjoy electricity during the day for convenience and battery-operated lights at night for a tranquil ambiance. Rest well on basic bunks or single beds with foam mattresses and gather around tables and chairs. Stay cozy with a fuel oil stove on cooler nights, sharing stories, drinks, and games with fellow adventurers.

From hearty hot breakfasts that fuel your day’s adventures to dinners brimming with all the fixings, we ensure your appetite is well satisfied.
