Good Morning and Happy 2018 everyone!  We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and another new year is upon us!

As we look to this year, we are starting to fill the cabins during the fishing season.  We are anticipating having our first Happy Campers in Mid June.  We have been in contact with the MNR in hopes of expanding our Bear hunt and if that happens, we will be opening some more spots for a Spring hunt to begin in late May.  For now, our 2018 Fall Bear hunt spots are filled.

After the wild weather during most of the Moose hunt, most has settled down and a more normal winter has set in with snow and cold, just as we have in the northern US.  With an early snowfall, maybe we will be blessed with an early spring, I guess time will tell.

In 2018 we again will be hosting a camp full of veterans, we are so looking forward to them as well as all of our Happy Campers from near and far who travel to the Happy Camp region and enjoy the beautiful woods and waters that abound!

If you are looking for a place to come relax, fish, play in the water, woods or just listen to the wind whip through the wilderness, shoot us an email or phone us today to Come and Catch the Good Life with Us at Happy Camp Ontario!

Hi everyone, wanted to stop in and thank everyone for a successful year in 2017.  It certainly was an odd year with weather and many other activities!  Heavy snow put a damper on the Moose hunting season and time will tell what kind of work will need to be done in 2018!

Magoo and I were thrown an awful twist as she had surgery in early October and is slowly recovering, hopefully she will be ready to rumble next year as well.

As we look to the future, we have a couple of Bear hunts left to fill for the year, so if you are looking for an adventure, please contact me today to get more information or book your spot!  Speaking of contacting us, we can be reached at our email or feel free to phone me at 715-630-4444 and.

Thank you to all who came to visit us at Happy Camp Ontario, and we hope to have many more years of awesome adventures with everyone!  For now, have a wonderful winter season and whatcha waiting for, shoot us an email or call us today saving your spot to Come and Catch the Good Life with us at Happy Camp Ontario!

Hi everyone, here is a brief Bear Hunt update!  Stands were set well in advance and anticipation ran high as all baits were being hit daily up to the hunt.  Heavy rain and big time weather changes came in the day before the hunt.  In fact, Day 1 brought hunters out of the woods freezing to death as the temperatures plummeted.  With the huge changes, the baits were left with only one hunter seeing a bear but no shots taken.

Day 2 brought heat, sun and another change.  Blueberry and Rasberries have exploded adding another change to the scenery, but 3 hunters saw Bears in their stands and 2 of them were successful!!  Micky shot a beautiful 160 pound Bear while Keith’s Bear tipped the scale at 335 dressed weight.  The excitement ran high as day 3 neared.

Day 3 brought yet more changes, and hunters saw Bears while getting into their stands.  But as luck would have it, rain came by mid-afternoon and by early evening heavy rain blanketed the region, thus ending day 3 with no Bears seen.  The rain continued through the night and did not end until late morning.  The Frostick’s chose to head for home without filling their tags, but awesome memories that will last a lifetime!  With the rain, Day 4 was a wash as hunters chose to stay in camp.

Day 5 came in and the remaining 2 hunters, Donna and Henry, heading to the woods.  Henry’s stand was moved to his other bait while Donna stood firm on her first chosen bait.  Larry, Keith and I wandered around and found awesome blueberries and the bushes were full of fresh plump berries and we all filled our bellies, lucky no Bears were in that patch!  No luck at the baits, maybe tomorrow.

Day 6, here we go again, now we get heat up into the upper 80’s and while baits were hit when we went in, no bears were seen.  About 5:30 the clouds built quickly and strong storms hit us shortly before 7 pushing us out of the woods.  As we drove back to Happy Camp, the water filled the roads and much mud pushed us around but we did make it back safely.

So Day 7 is upon us, sunny now and fingers are crossed in hopes that the weather stabilizes and the Bears start to feed.  With the Solar eclipse coming today, maybe we will have our first Eclipse bear taken, time will tell eh!

As far as fishing, it has been up and down as well with some days many walleyes biting to other days they are very tight lipped.  We have had a couple of fish frys so we are not going hungry.

We continue to be amazed at the wonderful people who find their way to Happy Camp.  From the youngest one here, Aiden at 18 months, Bonnie his great grandma, and Larry who works hard each day to please everyone but himself,  each of you bring something special to our Camp and we can not thank you enough for choosing to come and hunt, fish, give the dogs an ear scratch or belly rub or just spend time with us, thank you everyone!

So as we will end our hunt at the end of the week, we look to the future and as of now, there are only a few spots left for 2018 Bear hunt, so if you are truly looking for an adventure of a lifetime and a hunt or fishing trip that is second to none, shoot us a message or give us a call to save your spot to Come and Catch the Good Life with Us at Beautiful Happy Camp Ontario.

Hi Folks from cool, windy Happy Camp Ontario!  Yes the heat and humidity is gone and the strong north winds are howling as I write!  As we slowly inch towards Bear Hunt 2017, here is the latest update!

We had a few fishermen in camp and Micki brought back a Pike of a lifetime, a 42 inch 16 pound monster that he is having mounted over in Hearst!  While fishing was tough during the heat, they did manage enough fish for a fabulous fry the other night!!  I did get out with my mom the other day, and we caught lots of fish, Pike and Walleye using various techniques and did see a huge Pike in the 20 pound range and caught numerous walleyes over 20 inches, but we did manage to bring back enough for supper and for mom to take back to Wisconsin!

Bear baits are going well, many nice Bear on cameras as well as our first Moose and of course the Wolves.  In fact, earlier this week, some real bug chubs are on camera, hope they don’t stray too far before Bear Hunt 2017 begins on August 15th!!!

Speaking of Bear Hunt 2017, I got word earlier this week that the Bear Czar, Happy Camp’s Pal Larry will be joining us for the hunt!  Larry’s woodsman’s skills, hunting prowess and absolute mastery of the Bears is simply second to none and we are blessed to know and have him in our camp!  Now if we can only figure out how to keep him out of the Bear Bait, we will have enough for the Bears to eat!!!

The Blueberries have exploded and ripe all over the place.  We picked some the other day and a pie was had during dinner the other night along with some Speckle Trout, ooh they are so tasty!!

Interesting in our time at Happy Camp Ontario, I have not seen many songbirds except the occasional Robin, Flicker and Whiskey Jacks.  But alas, this evening there are Junco’s and an OvenBird sitting near the Flowers eating bugs, so cool!!

As we begin the hunting season, we do have a cabin open for the Moose hunt, so if anyone is looking for the best place in all of WMU 21B, shoot us a message or give us a call to save that spot for you!

As the camp is quiet for a few days until Bear hunters start coming in next week, we will be busy Bear Baiting, working on the Game Pole, docks, decks and much more.  If you are in the area, stop by and help us, heck we never turn away good help and most likely will feed you supper and take you fishing if you wish!

Sadly, our annual Take a Vet outing missed this year and we need to say thank you to all of the vets for your service and providing our safety and freedom!  Now get your butts back to camp and lets laugh, live, fish and play like only the Vets can do!!

So with that Happy Campers, I will stop the fingers and turn on the Brewers, they still are hanging in there and it is almost September, what is up with that!

Thank you for choosing to come to Happy Camp Ontario and look forward to seeing many of you again!  Take care and whatcha waiting for, give us a call or shoot us a message soon to Come and Catch the Good Life with Us at Happy Camp Ontario!!!
