The location of the motel on the shore of the lake gives you the chance to catch a variety of fish. At certain times of the year, fishing from the motel deck is as fantastic as anywhere on the lake. If the weather prevents you from getting out on the lake, there is still shore fishing while in sight of your motel room! You don’t need always need a boat to catch fish at Caribou Lodge! One year we caught seventeen master angler walleye while shore fishing near the motel in June!
Cranberry Portage in the aurora oval so watching the northern lights is common during the clear winter nights. Caribou Lodge is a great place to view the northern lights because of our location, the distance from town and artificial light sources. Northern lights are not visible during our summer nights due to the long daylight hours.
