Incredible abandoned resort

Unread postby Freelance Bowhunter » Wed Jun 19, 2019 7:48 am

I found this place when I was bear baiting in Ontario a couple years ago. Went back and filmed it with my wife a couple weeks ago. Really amazing place, thought you all would be interested.

Fascinating .... like a ghost town. Do people still fish the lake catch and release ?

I found a few of those over the years. Always very interesting and always think about the stories that could be told and the fun times that were had there and most of all why were they abandoned?

Thanks for sharing. 8-)

Been a lot of years now and people do fish the area and eat the fish.

That was pretty cool. I must say I am interested now in searching about the mercury, and the source. Thanks for sharing

Great video and an amazing place. The cabins with intact roofs almost look like someone could move back into one today.

Amazing how well those cabins have held up.
My cousin owns a similar resort in Alaska; from what I understand of it without significant annual maintenance the muskeg/tundra would pretty much swallow it all within a couple decades.
He's constantly jacking and shoring them up as they slowly sink.

The condition of those Ontario cabins, (and especially the massive stone fireplaces) indicates to me that it was all built on very solid ground; and probably solid ROCK!

So sad that it couldn't have been used and enjoyed by thousands more people since the mercury warning...


Thanks for sharing it with us!

The story on the fly in resort is quite amazing. Lots of info online about it and the coverup of the mercury in the water.
