If you are even thinking about it, just book it!
Although we haven't been able to get up to see Scott & Mary Jo for a couple years (kids, life, etc) this place is the nicest we ever stayed at in Ontario. We made an annual trip here for years because of the quality of cabins, boats, equipment and hosts. Scott & Maty Jo are more than willing to help you out with the fishing hot spots. Take their advice, they want you to catch fish! Like an earlier post says, take your camera with you everywhere, especially for the awesome sunsets. This is truly the best of both worlds - the best fishing and accomodations while still being able to drive directly to your cabin door.

The end of the road
We have traveled to Caribou Lake - Forrest Lodge five times, and plan on an annual return indefinitely. Cabins, boats, motors, Scott & Mary Jo are the best. The lake is huge, good places to fish without hardly seeing anyone else all day plentiful. Walleyes dominate, while Northern's typically run deep with the walleyes, and lake trout convenient to the lodge if you target them. Mary Jo will smoke trout for you and does an awesome job. A welcome perk at Forrest Lodge is the once a week "Lodge Fry" hosted by Scott & Mary Jo with an opportunity to visit with other guests in residence.

I have been going to Caribou lake for 10 years every fall for moose hunting/fishing. Forrest Lodge owners Mary Jo and Scott run a first class operation. Very clean, well kept cabins and property. Boats and motors are in great condition. Fishing is unbelievable. Moose are plentiful. Scott always knows the best places to drop a line. Ice, minnows, worms ,gas, freezers, anything you need for a great trip is all there. You will not regret staying at Forrest Lodge.

Fishing trip to Forrest Lodge
In July 2013 we did a 5 day fishing trip to to Caribou Lake and stayed at Forrest Lodge. The fishing was great and our accommodations great. Clean cabins with hot showers and 24 hour electricity. A well equipped kitchen made it easy to have good fresh fish meals. They have a fish cleaning house and a freezer to freeze fish for take home. The owners do a great job of providing everything you need for a memorable fishing experience. Caribou Lake is very large with many opportunity to observe wild life. I enjoy hearing the Loons. Be sure to take a camera as sunsets can be pretty spectacular and you never know what animals you may see.
