Our marina has docking that can accommodate up to forty boats; private boats are welcomed. Our fleet of rental boats is made up of traditional 18' cedar-strips, powered by dependable 15hp outboard motors. These traditional wood boats, dry and well maintained, were first built and designed for use on Lake Nipissing by Giesler and Sons Ltd. Our 18’ cedar-strips can accommodate up to 4 adults comfortably, although many of our guests prefer to fish 2-3 per boat. At dockside we sell live bait, gasoline, oil and ice.
Next to the gas-pump area (the oil-shed) is a well used part-cement boat ramp. After launching their boats, we ask our guests to please park their boat trailers in a designated area located towards the back of the campsites so we are not tripping over boat trailers all the time (especially after dark).
Located behind the "oilshed" is our fish cleaning hut, often in great demand. One complaint we sometimes hear is the wait-in-line to clean fish is too long. But that just means the fish are biting and no one complains too hard about that!
We discourage the use of sea-doos at Lakair. Our apologies if we offend anyone here but guests bringing along sea-doos is just not allowed here. This, not too difficult, decision was made as many of our guests like to sit quietly at dockside in the evening, watching the setting sun and listening to the gulls or loons calling. (Although outboard motors can be noisy usually it is only for the few moments it takes them to pass on by and they don’t tend to race around in circles for hours on end.)
On the same quiet and peaceful theme, we rent out rowboats, canoes and kayaks. Our kayaks are designed as "fishing-kayaks" with rod holders and bait wells. These are sit-on-top models and require little expedience in order to be enjoyed.
