Accessible only by float plane, Peterson's Point Lake Lodge is approximately 215 miles north of Yellowknife, capital of the Northwest Territories. Bordering the edge of the Barrenlands and Arctic Circle, Peterson's Point Lake Lodge is one of the most northerly lodges in the Northwest Territories. Situated in the midst of this vast land of countless lakes and rivers, Point Lake forms part of the legendary Coppermine River system, which winds its way some 200 miles to the Arctic Ocean. As the only lodge on this 70-mile lake, you will enjoy exclusive access to Point Lake.

Point lake is one of the largest lakes on the Coppermine River system, which winds its way over 525 miles (845 kms) to the Arctic Ocean. Point Lake is 71 miles long and averages 2 miles wide with the exception of Pointless Island an impressive landmass smack dab in the middle of Point Lake, which is 9 miles long x 8 miles wide. The lake has deep drop-offs, up to 300' and shallow rocky shorelines, which offers ideal habitat for lakers. Two prominent rivers flow into Point Lake, one north from Itchen Lake and the other from Sagvak River located on the south shore.
This area is teeming with fish and guests consistently pull out trophy lakers up to 40lbs.
We did not pick the location of our lodge by chance. It was the result of several years of extensive searching for the best hunting and fishing location in the Northwest Territories. This is when we found Point Lake, a northern gem, a lake teeming with trophy fish and caribou traveling along time-honoured migratory paths. In the summer, the sun never sets and in the fall the aurora borealis is often seen dancing across the sky. Our lodge is located on the west end of Point Lake, just 40 miles south of the Arctic Circle.
This area is rich in history as early European explorers (Samueal Hearne and Sir John Franklin) and aboriginal lpeoples travelled through the area.
