It's been a pleasure to go to Dollars Lake Island Resort! Everything was perfect! The view from the cottage was amazing! We rented 3 rooms and all of them were clean. We had everything we need in the kitchen! Kids enjoyed too. The playroom was great, plenty of toys! Thanks to the owners! 


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 Wolf 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. We also have a FREE shuttle service to and from the island if you do not have a boat. 

 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 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 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 with chairs. 

Each cabin is fully equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable vacation. All you need to bring is your food and toiletries   All cabins have a 3 piece bath (shower, toilet and vanity) Sorry we do not have bathtubs.
