One of the reasons for the popularity of Kashaga Lodge’s ice fishing package is that most of the huts are within easy walking distance of the cottages, enabling anglers to fish when the bite is on, and eat, snooze, play poker, or watch the hockey game in the comfort of their comfy heated cottage.
Little Hawk Lake
Little Hawk Resort & Marina
Stayed at this fantastic little resort in the middle of no where. What a awesome place to spend a vacation. We booked to ice fish and we had a great time. The cottage was great, the hut is exactly what you need to enjoy time with friends on the lake and catch lake trout, and we caught a couple perch. The food is awesome and the owners are fantastic. Would recommend this place to anyone. Will definitely be back next year! Thank you for a great time!
We situate our huts on a ridge that runs from 45-65 feet in depth, located only 250-300 ft off shore & within easy walking distance for day and night ice fishing. You can walk back and forth from your hut to our large ice skating rink ( lit at night ) for a game of hockey between bites or to your cottage making it very convenient to visit with family and friends staying in the cottage. Get together with your friends in one of our two bedroom lakeside cottages or three bedroom courtyard cottages featuring gas fireplace, BBQs and full kitchens. This is a step up from the typical ice fishing experience.
