Located within a 1/2 Kilometer (1/4 Mile) of downtown Temagami and on the shores of picturesque Cassels-Rabbit Lakes is Northland Paradise Lodge. Directly in front of the lodge is the White Bear Old Growth Forest, a 2,000 acre (800 hectare) ancient ecosystem of giant red and white pines (up to 5 feet or 1.5 m in diameter) and a variety of at least twenty five different species of rare northern orchids. The lodge is accented in cedar and knotty pine while our eight comfortable units have electric heat, town water, three piece showers and full cooking facilities. All linen and cooking utensils are supplied. Our dining room seats 18 hungry guests comfortably.
Browse through our gift shop for souvenir shirts, hats, tackle and tanned wild fur. Free boat launching and mooring is available for guests. Use the lodge as a starting point to explore over 50 Kilometers (30 Miles) of pristine, almost uninhabited wilderness of our lake system which is rich with walleye (pickerel), northern pike, smallmouth bass, lake trout and whitefish. Pack a lunch and swim at any of the sand beaches while listening to the cry of the loons.
If the loons are too vocal in the early morning hours, we suggest closing your windows.
Our rental canoes will take avid nature lovers through countless lakes, rivers and streams of varying difficulty to view and photograph some of the most breath-taking and unique scenery available in North America. Observe many forms of wildlife in their natural habitat including bear, moose, beaver, otter, pine marten, mink, fisher and lynx as well as loons, blue herons, peregrine falcons, osprey, ruffed grouse, pilleated woodpeckers, Canada Jays (Whiskey Jacks) and countless varieties of northern song birds including the very vocal but rare orange crested warbler.

Please visit our two newest web pages with pics and text .... the first is all about mushrooms and the other one is all about wedding & portrait photography. For guests wishing to check their emails while on vacation with us, we now have WiFi and wireless connection available.
This website has been formatted to a width of 700 pixels which fits comfortably on most computer monitors. If you are viewing this website and the pictures & text (especially on pages such as orchids, mushrooms, kids' first fish, etc.) appear to not be vertically lined up correctly, may I suggest that you re-format your monitor width settings to 700+ pixels for maximum viewing enjoyment.
I try to update the website at least once a week ... sometimes daily. The pages on summer fishing reports and the winter snowmobile trail conditions are our two most visited pages and together, they have the latest in up-to-date changes. The photos and text on all the pages are either changed or added to on a regular basis to keep you, our customers, informed of the latest news and tips to make certain that your vacation with us is a very memorable experience. Please bookmark this site for easy access in the future.
The latest website update was on Friday, March 24, 2017.

How to Find Us
Driving time (including breaks and meals) to Temagami from ...
The town of Temagami is located on Highway 11 approximately 100 km (60 miles) north of North Bay Ontario or 70 km (40 miles) south of New Liskeard. Northland Paradise Lodge can easily be found "just behind the train station" in the middle of town. Turn east at the south end of the beautiful stone Ontario Northland Railroad (ONR) train station onto O'Connor Drive, proceed for 50 m (50 yards) and turn left (north) onto Stevens Road. Follow it for 1/2 km (1/4 mile) and we're on the right side at the second bend in the road. As you're driving down Stevens Road, look past the billboard at the end of the driveway and you'll see the bright orange roof of the lodge.
On a sadder note, I'm sorry to say that Buddy, our yellow Labrador, camp guardian and chipmunk chaser, passed away in June of 2012, just 3 months short of his fourteenth birthday. Among his favorite places, at any given time, were going fishing (in anybody's boat), hanging over the side of a pick-up truck box to enjoy the road breeze or holding down the top of the picnic table while guarding the yard from those pesky chipmunk invaders. I'm sure he'll be missed by all of our returning guests who looked forward to his wagging tail and friendly licks as they arrive for another vacation in all four seasons.
