Welcome to a spectacular wilderness setting that has not changed for 10,000 years! Aikens Lake Wilderness Lodge sits amongst a beautiful birch stand along a sandy beach on the northeast shore of Aikens Lake since 1948. Located near the inlet to the Gammon River in the Atikaki Wilderness Provincial Park in Manitoba, Canada, world class trophy fishing is a cast away.

Trip number five and once again Aikens Lake out did itself. I thought it impossible for this wonderful place to get any better.

From the accommodations, to the staff and especially shore lunch, the entire experience at Aikens Lake is unmatched.
