Morson

Morson

The shorelines and islands surrounding our community are largely undeveloped. Travellers can marvel at much of the same scenery that the first explorers saw when they discovered this island-studded gem in the centre of the continent. Local rock paintings depict the life of the area’s earliest inhabitants. Nestled on the south-eastern shore of Lake of the Woods, only 35 miles north of the Canada-US border, are the communities of Morson and Bergland. Amenities of over thirty businesses ensure that visitors never want for necessities. Our restaurants, stores and businesses offer a variety of choices for your vacationing pleasure.

For hearts that wish to experience true wilderness, Morson is a Mecca for naturalists, hikers, anglers and hunters. Although the tranquil wilderness presses in from all sides, camping, full-service RV sites, the charm of a rustic cabin, the privacy of a houseboat, a comfortable housekeeping cabin or an all inclusive American plan vacation are awaiting you.

Once you reach Morson, the stresses of everyday life give way to the easier choices – Would you like to fish, hunt, go for a swim, golf, hike, go bird watching, pick wild berries, visit a favourite restaurant, or simply sit back and relax? Morson is located in the “island belt” of the lake which makes fishing an unmatched pleasure; the rocky shores, marshy inlets and countless sandy bays are a one-stop spot for walleye, smallmouth and largemouth bass, muskie, northern pike, lake trout, crappies and perch. If you have never experienced a shorelunch, this is a meal you won’t want to miss. There is nothing that will compare to fresh fish prepared over an open fire and served with all the trimmings! The islands are also a great place to find a stretch of sandy beach; indulge in the warm sand, cool water and more often than not the privacy of your very own beach for the day. New for 2009 is a public day-use park with swimming beach and picnic area located on Frenchman’s Rock Road.

Lake of the Woods is truly a sportsman’s paradise – hunting here is among the finest in the world. Wild rice bays are feeding grounds for flocks of mallards and teal, wood ducks and rafts of bluebills are available to the sure-eyed hunter. Grouse are plentiful and are sport for the small game hunters who seek them out. Moose, deer and bear roam the forests of the islands and the fields on mainland. Make sure to have your camera ready to get your best shot!

Along with your fishing pole, don’t forget to pack your golf clubs to play 9-holes at the Spruce Creek Golf Course. Our communities host several annual events throughout the year that add fun for the spectator as well as the participant. The Morson Bass International fishing tournament, August 28 & 29, 2010, also includes a free kid’s fishing tournament, family activities and entertainment. Other community events include a Family Fun Day, dinners, First Nation’s Pow-Wows and ice fishing derbies all welcome visitors. See events calendar for specific dates and contact information or the website for more details.

Visit Morson, stay awhile, and leave with memories that will last a lifetime. The lake and the surrounding wilderness remain, for the most part, untouched and unchanged by the hands of either humans or time. Visitors can rediscover Lake of the Woods the way the first explorers encountered it many years ago.
