Northern Ontario Lodging & Accommodations

Specializing in the Mining Sector, serving the lodging needs of all

Nestled within acres of beautiful pine trees overlooking the Oskondaga River and valley near Shebandowan Lake, Oskondaga River Outfitters provides clean and comfortable lodging year-round in our lodge, bunkhouse and cabins. As a family owned and operated business, our famous northern Ontario hospitality appeals to groups looking for meeting space or retreats, as well as work crews who love our friendly atmosphere and great home cooking.

Work Crews

We also provide catering to companies looking for room and board for their work crews. Whether mining and exploration, diamond drillers or contractors, we have everything your work crew needs to perform at their best! We have wireless internet, satellite T.V., telephone, and laundry. Guests can choose from private rooms, doubles or cabins. Open year-round, we offer modern accommodations and excellent meals, and our hours are set to suit your needs. People working away from home really appreciate the friendly atmosphere and the great home-cooking and baked goods. Food is served home-style, and 'seconds' are always available.

We offer American Plan or housekeeping.


Oskondaga River Outfitters boasts a large open yard suitable for landing helicopters, offering plenty of parking space for vehicles and equipment, not to mention the additional septic and power that is available for those extra large crews requiring it!

Meetings, Retreats, Groups

We cater to retreats and offer meeting space and accommodations for groups of up to 20 wanting to get away from all it all, yet with all the conveniences of the city, including wireless internet, telephone, and of course, our famous home-cooking!


For those who would prefer to 'rough it', we also offer tent camping and trailer parking. Pitch your tent or trailer along the shores of the Oskondaga River and enjoy spectacular vistas as the sun sets for the day. We frequently accommodate groups or individual cyclists making their way across northern Ontario.
