French River Outfitters

French River

When you stay with French River Outfitters, your adventure begins before you even get to your secluded off-grid log cabin.

Their experienced guides meet you at the dock located at Hartley Bay Marina and take you by jet boat up the mighty French River over rapids and to the luxurious log cabin that will be your home base for the duration of your stay.

Don't let the notion of an "off-grid" log cabin fool you.  This cabin has every amenity you need to make your stay unforgettable.  With a large Weber BBQ, a smoker and a giant 4ft rotisserie you'll be well equipped to make some epic meals.  And if you need to stay connected to work or home, a Starlink internet connection allows you to reach the outside world or watch your favorite team or show on a 65" TV.

Despite all the things that make these accommodations unique, it's the fishing that will make you want to come back to French River Outfitters again and again.  Trophy Musky, Walleye, Pike, Smallmouth and even Sturgeon prowl the waters of the French River and Georgian Bay and the guides at French River Outfitters will put you on them!

With all this and more French River Outfitters make your remote access, off grid, fantasy fishing adventure a reality!
