We are Josée and Jamie the Owner/Operators of Kanipahow Wilderness Resort & Outposts. Located 11km (7 miles) from the picturesque Northern Ontario town of Chapleau. We run 6 full-service cabins on the Main Base Camp located on beautiful Lake Chapleau as well as 2 Remote drive in/boat in Outposts in the area. (Embarrass & Northwind Lakes)

Kanipahow celebrated its’ 70th consecutive year of operation in 2022 and we are working hard to continue the tradition of providing excellence in customer service and offering true Northern Ontario Wilderness Fishing and Hunting Adventures.

The abundant wildlife and rich fertile waters of the Chapleau River produces a hunting and fishing Resort that has become well known all over North America. The support of conservation and wildlife management over the years has allowed us to maintain the high success rate that our customers continue to enjoy today.

We offer excellent Walleye, Northern Pike and Jumbo Perch fishing at all of our locations. While adjoining waters also offer opportunities for excellent Brook Trout, Splake and Smallmouth Bass fishing. All of this situated in the Northern Ontario Wilderness of Algoma Country just a little over 3 hours North of the International bridge in Sault Ste. Marie in friendly Chapleau, Ontario.


Located directly off the eastern shores of Chapleau Game Preserve, Kanipahow Wilderness Resort and Outposts main base location is situated in what is often referred to as the Black Bear capital of the world.  We operate 10 to 15 actives over barrel bait sites for guest selection each Season. All Bear Hunt packages are operated out of our Main Base on the beautiful shores of Chapleau Lake and boats are provided to enjoy some world class fishing if you would like between time. we have a high viewing success rate for our Fall Black Bear hunt.

The Resort offers excellent fishing and comfortable accommodations that comes in 2 packages, the first with full-service cabin and boat package (boat, motor, gas, life jackets, paddles, docking fee included). The other without the boat package.

Kanipahow Resort is also at the doorstep of the Chapleau Crown Game Preserve which is the Largest Game Preserve in the World. We can also arrange day trips to one of the many quality fishing lakes in the neighborhood for those wanting to explore.

Our Outposts are all situated on remote lakes and were all originally fly-in cabins. Recently, commercial activity in the area permitted for drive-in/boat-in access. What this means to our guests, is access to unique lake cabins on non-stressed water systems at the fraction of a fly-in cost. Our rates include guide-in assistance, cabin, propane, boat, motor, gas, paddles, life jackets, BBQ, etc…

While the cabins are all situated on excellent fishing lakes, we also provide access, on many adjoining lakes for you to fish and explore, and in some cases boats or canoes are provided.

We would be happy to work with you and your party to put together a package for a memorable wilderness adventure, just drop us a note or give us a call with your desired dates and the number in your party and we can get the ball rolling towards providing you a fishing trip to Kanipahow Wilderness Resort & Outposts in beautiful Northern Ontario.

We hope to have the chance of continuing the tradition of providing clean and comfortable accommodations to you and your party in one of the best fishing locations in all of Ontario.
