by / Thursday, 24 March 2016 / Published in Blog, Fishing

Located in eastern Ontario, Canada close to the U. S. border ‑ Pennsylvania and New York states ‑  Sylvania Lodge Campground and Cottages is located at Dalhousie Lake, the headwaters of Canada’s Mississippi River and makes a memorable vacation destination for all ages. Fishing on Dalhousie Lake offers peaceful waters with little powerboat traffic, and plenty of fish to catch.

Dalhousie Lake is home to largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, northern pike, walleye and pickerel. Almost four miles long, you’ll have plenty of chances to search for your best catch while fishing on Dalhousie Lake, or try your luck fishing along the meandering Mississippi River. If you’re looking for a fun way to create lasting memories with friends and family, consider a Dalhousie Lake fishing vacation with Sylvania Lodge Campground as your base camp.

Even if you don’t have a boat, fishing on Dalhousie Lake is still possible with the non motorized boats and canoes available for rent from Sylvania Lodge.

Also available from Sylvania Lodge are four fully equipped cottages available for rent by the week, month, or season. Check them out on our web site at Each cottage comes with satellite TV, air/heat, fully equipped kitchens, decks, BBQ’s, and two bedrooms. All you have to bring is food and bedding. Spend evenings around your own campfire or join with your neighbours for friendly get‑togethers. Each cottage comes with access to docking space and unlimited boat launches. Bring your own boat or rent one of our fishing boats or canoes.  **NOTE** Any motorized craft taken onto the water must be in compliance with local licensing and registration requirements. Fishing on Dalhousie Lake is enjoyable nearly any time of day, from the early morning to the early evening. And because Dalhousie Lake and its tributary, the Mississippi River are so quiet, you won’t find better canoeing or kayaking anywhere.

After you’ve enjoyed Dalhousie Lake’s great fishing, swimming, or sunbathing on our private beach; golfing at one of the area’s several challenging 9 or 18 hole golf courses, sightseeing or something more adventurous, be sure to include a visit to our very own on‑site Dalhousie Lake Restaurant. Featuring homestyle cuisine and locally sourced ingredients (whenever available), our restaurant can host large or small get‑togethers. We also have a Party Room available for special occasions. Our menu offers a wide variety of choices. We have something on our menu for just about everyone, from juicy steaks and thick burgers ‑ beef or locally produced Bison ‑  to simple hot dogs and hand‑made pizza. You’ll enjoy dining at the Dalhousie Lake Restaurant even more, thanks to our airy design and wraparound porches. There’s no better way to enjoy an evening meal than while watching the sunset over Dalhousie Lake ‑ trust us.

With everything we have to offer, you can be sure that you won’t soon forget your Dalhousie Lake vacation. Besides what the area has to offer, or the relaxing peaceful atmosphere of our cottages and campgrounds, the many regulars who come back to Sylvania Lodge Campground year after year for fishing on Dalhousie Lake tell anglers everything they need to know ‑  the fish are here!  We invite you to come and experience the legendary hospitality of Sylvania Lodge and the incredible fishing, and boating on Dalhousie Lake.
