Never-Ending Water Adventure on the Montreal River

Autumn may be peeking around the corner, but the summer heat is far from over. We have several months left of never-ending, family-friendly water adventure. There’s still plenty of time to book an all-inclusive, week-long stay in one of our pristine cottages with breathtaking Montreal River vistas! Elk Lake Wilderness Resort rests on a beautiful Montreal River inlet east of Elk Lake. The river here is peaceful, the clean water is refreshing, and the fish are always biting! Here are some exciting ways you can spend time with family and friends on the river this summer!

Rent a Pontoon for the Day

Elk Lake Wilderness Resort has a wide variety of boat rentals, including Lund fishing boats, but don’t forget that pontoons are the true source of endless water fun! Week-long boat rentals start at only $300. Wake up with a fresh cup of French roast coffee then hop aboard your pontoon for an early-morning fishing excursion on the Montreal River. Our scenic river has an abundance of northern pike, but don’t be surprised to reel in a monster bass, pickerel, perch, or a delicious walleye. After enjoying our famous barbecue chicken pizza and Caribbean jerk chicken wings, treat the kids to an afternoon of exhilarating tubing! Then finish each evening with a lazy pontoon ride complete with an ice-cold beverage.

Non-Motorized Water Excitement

When you’re not on the boat or indulging in a delicious homecooked Donaldson burger, explore the many coves along the Montreal River. We highly recommend bringing along your trusty kayak, SUP, or canoe for an afternoon of exploration and relaxation. Paddle up the Montreal River and achieve a level of tranquility that you didn’t think was possible. Our guests are also welcome to splash or relax on our giant water trampoline. There’s no wrong way to spend a day at Elk Lake Wilderness Resort!

The Premier Elk Lake Resort

The verdict is in: spend a week in heaven on the Montreal River. Elk Lake Wilderness Resort has incredible fishing, modern cottages, breathtaking scenery, and homecooked meals. Besides splashing, paddling, and fishing on the Montreal River, late-night campfires are the preferred summer activity. Cozy up to your loved ones, watch a sunset, roast marshmallows, and exchange fishing tales. We’re also fast approaching the prime northern lights season. Book a family summer getaway to Elk Lake Wilderness Resort – it’ll be the best decision you’ve made in years!
