The Dryden area is a great place to ride for the freedom to explore NW Ontario's vast wilderness. From our camp on Rugby Lake you have 1000s of miles of interconnected trails & logging roads, some maintained groomed trails, many others unmarked- bring a GPS. About 10 miles north of the lodge is the main cross country trail L301, which comes from Sioux Lookout.
This labyrinth of groomed snowmobile trails in the Dryden and Vermilion Bay area is highly organized and maintained by the Dryden Power Toboggan Club. They are active members of the Northwestern Snow Trails Association and all clubs are governed by the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs.
These snowmobile trails will bring you to places only accessible by snowmobile and so remote that very few people will ever see what you will see. You will witness many spectacles of nature, wildlife and breathtaking scenery. You will also have access to many small lakes that never get fished. If you bring ice fishing gear, ice auger and portable shelter you can do some ice fishing. The most important aspect is all the trails are safe and fun.
The City of Dryden has several power sport dealers for snowmobile repair, parts and accessories, which are all available in local stores or mechanics specializing in snow machines. From Dryden the prime destinations where repairs and parts are available are Vermilion Bay, Red Lake, Sioux Lookout, Ignace and Kenora.
We offer comfortable accommodations for people looking to go snowmobiling for a week's vacation or just for a 3-day weekend.
