Black Bear Hunting:|
Nakina is a trophy Black Bear factory. Areas burned by forest fires or cleared by logging allow grasses and many species of barriers to grow thus giving the Black Bears the nutrition they need to grow big and grow fast. There are many lakes and stream in the area that produce high populations of beaver, which is one of the Black Bear's favorite foods. The high population of Moose in the area also supplies extra predation opportunities. Black Bears in the area are common in the 175 to 275 pound but Black Bears over 400 pounds have been harvested from time-to-time.
Nakina is the top Moose hunting destination in Ontario and maybe all of Canada. Due to the high population of Moose; outfitters in the Nakina area are issued more adult Bull Moose tags and Cow Moose tags than anywhere else in Ontario. There are many ATV trails, game trails and old logging roads that will allow you to get access to logged and burned areas where the Moose like to feed on new grasses and shoots from young softwood trees, which are always first to grow in these areas. Success rates are high with some Bull Moose reaching over 1300 pounds.
There are many game trails, ATV paths and old logging roads that you can walk down and find grouse. Grouse hunting is getting more popular each year as it is very enjoyable. Just imagine walking through the forest on a beautiful autumn day, getting some low-impact exercise and hunting these tasty game birds. 75% of grouse you see will be Ruffed Grouse. There are also Sharp Tailed Grouse and Spruce Grouse found in the Nakina area.
Both fisherpersons and hunters alike can enjoy all this adventure in our newly renovated housekeeping cabins, which are clean, roomy, comfortable and equipped with all the appliances and furniture you need. Our Fox Boro cabin is wheelchair accessible. We have a potable ramp to make our other cabins wheelchair accessible or easier for guests with physical challenges. The camp is located on a flat area where people with physical challenges can easily get from the cabins to the docks without any obstacles. We have sturdy docks that are not too high off the water.
We have a campground that faces Lower Twin Lake on one side and the drowning River runs along the length of the campground on another side. If you do not wish to rent one of our comfortable cabins you are welcome to bring your tents or RVs.
We have been working really hard upgrading the camp because we realize that these days people are looking for comfort as well as adventure. We have a high guest return rate because our guests know that every time they come back the camp is more comfortable, improved, the fishing is better and the hunting is better. We invite you to come and share the beauty of the extreme north with our family and have an adventure of a lifetime.
