About Us

Formerly known as Whip-Poor-Will Lodge, Dollars Lake Island Resort is a

small pine-covered island with small rustic cabins located near the town of Port

Loring, district of Parry Sound. Our Island retreat is located on Dollars Lake which 

is part of Northern Ontario's famous Pickerel River system which runs northwest

through the Georgian Bay Forest Reserve. Dollars Lake is also part of the Pickerel

and Wolfe  River canoe route. This country is a maze of rivers and lakes which

abound with pickerel, pike, walleye, bass, whitefish, crappie and pan fish. From

the Dollars Lake dam to Port Loring, anglers have  43 miles of navigable

water bordered by rugged shoreline  that is mostly crown land.

Popular angling spots are Stumpy, Noggard and Pontford Bays and the Wolf River. 

Using live bait and jigging on a rocky shoal, trolling the shoreline or casting a

crank bait along the edge of a weed bed in one of the many quiet bays will

result in success. Our Resort is accessible only by motorboat which we rent or

you can bring your own. You can enjoy a daily canoe trip, swimming, and

abundant bird and wild life viewing. The scenery is stunning and absolutely breath

taking. It is advisable when bringing children to bring a life preserver. This

offers complete safety for them while out in a boat. It also saves a good deal

of uneasiness for the parents when the children are playing around the water.

It is also advised to bring water soled shoes as the rocks can be very slippery.

Dollars Lake Island Resort may be remote,  but you're not going to have to rough it.

Rent one of our cabins suitable for families and fishermen. Our Lodge is available as

a common area for guests to lounge in our living room area and watch TV or read a book.

The dining area is a great spot to have a game of cards or play board games or just a

place to socialize with a cup of coffee. The kitchen area in the Lodge is under renovations

so will not be available this season.

The outdoor deck on the Lodge has a couple of picnic tables for outdoor dining with great

views of the lake. The sounds of the loons and birds are most enjoyable. 

All our cabins face the water and have decks, electric heat, and 3 piece bath (shower

toilet and vanity). The beds have pillows but we ask you to bring your own sleeping

bag, towels as well as personal needs. Each room has 2 small fridges, coffee maker,

2 element stove, toaster and microwave. We supply dishes, cutlery, pots and pans. There

is also barbecues for outdoor cooking on the deck in front of all cabins. All guests will have

to prepare a meal plan and bring their own food and drinks. There is a store in Port Loring

which is about a 20 minute drive. Parry Sound and Sudbury are about an hour away.

Georgian Bay 30,000 Island cruise. Jake's Place and Roxie's Diner are popular eating spots

in Port Loring or you can take a scenic 25 miniute boat ride to Lost Channel Inn for limited

groceries and supplies and be served in they're restaurant. 


Weather throughout July and August is usually very warm, with cool mornings and

evenings. Summer sports clothes are usual attire, not forgetting a heavy sweater or

windbreaker. A raincoat comes in handy in case of showers. The Lake can be very

unpredictable and turn from sun to rain in a matter of seconds. September and October

can be chilly months and warm clothes are advised. Black fly season in a normal year is

late May till about the 3rd week in June so come prepared.



The island and lodge was established in the early 1920's and over the years has offered

vacationers a means of unwinding from the tensions of our vicious business world. The

cool fresh nights make sleeping effortless. Morning comes with the rising sun on the

smooth glossy surface of the lake, the call of the loon, the twitter of the song sparrow

and the hammering of a far off woodpecker. The smooth water is broken here and there

with feeding bass and surfacing minnows. Come to Dollars Lake Island Resort and be one

with nature.
