About Us

Our tranquil resort is far removed from the demands and responsibilities of everyday life. Come get away from it all at Duck Bay Lodge, a private paradise of unspoiled natural beauty and premier Canadian fishing opportunities!

Located on the shores of Hay Island in the heart of Sabaskong Bay, Duck Bay Lodge is perfectly situated in the remote southeast corner of Lake of the Woods. Just north of the Minnesota border, Duck Bay Lodge is easy to get to no matter where you live. By car, we are less than a day’s drive from all the Midwestern states. And if you’re flying commercially from just about anywhere in the United States, you can leave home in the morning and be catching fish that same evening!

Getting Here

Most guests arrive at the border by automobile. International Falls, MN and Baudette, MN are the closest points of entry into Canada. Located just 70 miles from International Falls and 35 miles from Baudette, we are easily accessible with a short drive. Our docking area is located in Morson, Ontario, on the shores of Lake of the Woods. At Morson, you’ll be met and transported to Duck Bay Lodge by boat, a scenic 7-mile ride.

If you are planning to fly commercially, service is available only into International Falls. Several options are available for the remainder of your journey. You can hire a local van service, rent a car, or for a unique adventure, arrive right at our dock by floatplane. We are happy to discuss each option with you and help you with the arrangements.

If you plan to enter Canada in your own aircraft, Fort Frances Municipal Airport offers customs service. Contact us for assistance with your flight planning.
