Family Activities

Every year, schedules become busier, and days fly by even faster. That’s not the case at Duck Bay Lodge, where time passes more slowly, and families enjoy quality time together — away from the stresses, sports practices, appointments and other commitments of daily life.

It’s no secret that Lake of the Woods is known for some of the finest fishing in all of Canada, but we offer so much more than days spent out on the water.

Bring the whole family and create lasting memories at Duck Bay Lodge — whether you’re interested in fishing, adventuring, relaxing or simply enjoying one another’s company in a postcard-worthy environment. When you come here, you’ll find the most family friendly activities in Ontario.

There’s Much More To Do Than Fish

Duck Bay Lodge is a hotspot for fishermen and women from across Canada, the United States and beyond, but that doesn’t mean you should leave uninterested family members at home. Our lodge offers excitement for all family members, whether they’re eager to get out on the water and reel in trophy fish or not.


Duck Bay Lodge sits on one of the most breathtaking lakes in the country — the 1,679-square-mile Lake of the Woods. Whether you’re snapping photos of scenery and wildlife, birdwatching, swimming, canoeing, playing lawn games, or exploring the ancient pictographs (rock paintings) nearby, you’re sure to enjoy your time outdoors. Your kids will never utter the words, “I’m bored.”


Not every vacation day can be a sunny one, but you won’t feel like you’re missing out if you have to spend some time indoors at Duck Bay Lodge. The resort’s recreation hall is loaded with fun and relaxing indoor activities — including a foosball table, TV (for watching your favorite teams or shows), and a library stocked with local and international authors. We’re dedicated to being one of the absolute top family cottage resorts in Ontario, and we’re sure you’ll agree that we are.


There’s no doubt your family will have nonstop fun during your visit to Hay Island and Duck Bay Lodge, but that doesn’t mean the adults won’t be able to find time to relax as well. The wood-heated, 12-person sauna often feels like exactly what the doctor ordered after a long day of fishing, canoeing and exploring the wilderness of this gorgeous part of Canada.

The Duck Bay Lodge staff prides itself on providing unforgettable experiences for guests young and old. Fishermen of all levels can enjoy excursions with the resort’s professional guides, and an abundance of kids’ activities keep your little ones active and engaged. There are adventures available for travelers of all interests. Stay up to date on the resort’s newest and most exciting family activities and experiences by following Duck Bay Lodge on Facebook.
