ABOUT RED LAKE:
Nestled in the heart of northwestern Ontario's “Sunset Country”, Red Lake and 5 other towns form The Municipality of Red Lake.
The combined population is about 5,000, plus the influx of visitors who cycle through during tourist season.
Red Lake acts as a cargo, passenger and tourism hub for Northwestern Ontario and enjoys one of the highest per capita incomes in Canada.

With virtually zero unemployment, this is a great place to live and work, from childhood to retirement.
Red Lake is also the gateway to Woodland Caribou Provincial Park, now being proposed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This pristine wilderness park spans over 1 million acres, stretching from Red Lake to the Manitoba border.
Fish and wildlife thrive here in their natural, undisturbed habitat, which is home to one of the largest groups of Woodland Caribou south of Hudson Bay.
The park is a paddler’s dream with over 1000 miles of interconnected canoe routes and features the largest concentration of ancient aboriginal pictographs in Canada.
The 28 mile, Red Lake waterway links to 5 other lakes without the need for portage.
Anglers from all over North America travel here to be on some of the best fresh water sport fishing in the world.
Primary species include Walleye, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Whitefish, Yellow Perch, and Blue Crappie.
Whether you hunt birds or big game, Red Lake is a beacon for avid hunters.
Moose habitat is ideal and offers one of the highest success rates in Canada.
This is the perfect place for the outdoor enthusiast to explore the rugged, picturesque beauty of the Canadian Shield.
ABOUT CAMERON ISLAND
Cameron Island, also known as Howey Island, is found on the map as the fish-shaped island near the entrance to Howey Bay.
Located conveniently close to town, the island can be reached within minutes from the government dock and boat launch.
Cameron Island remains in its pure, natural state, as a blank slate for future development.
The topography ranges from low to medium, with the highest plateaus about 22 feet above the water line.
Several sand-gravel beaches are interspersed along the 3450 feet of shoreline.
Red Pine, Eastern Cedar, Black Spruce, Poplar and Paper Birch blanket the island to add another level of privacy.
Dual frontage development would take advantage of the full southern exposure as well as the unobstructed views of the spectacular sunsets and dazzling aurora borealis to the north.
At just over 8 acres, the island is large enough to be a truly private getaway.
The property might also be subdivided into 3 lots to share with family and friends, or to sell for investment.
Deep water frontages provide suitable moorage for full-keel sailboats, large boats, or float planes.
Remarkably, there is no Crown Reserve around the island, meaning that ownership includes the entire shoreline.
After rezoning, the island would be ideal for year round use as a family residence, or simply as a seasonal vacation retreat.
The island is well-suited for alternate, off-grid, energy technologies such as solar, wind turbine, or “lake loop” geothermal, and the forest provides an unlimited supply of firewood.
Local retailers routinely deliver bulk propane fuel across the lake and throughout the area.
Conventional hydro electric power connection is possible via an underwater cable from the mainland.
Hi-speed internet and cell phone service are available using WiFi hub technology.
Red Lake's well-established tourism industry, the strong local economy, the island's strategic location, and the future prospects for Woodland Caribou Provincial Park as an eco-tourist destination, invite commercial development ideas.
If you thought owning your own private island was only for millionaires, it’s time to reconsider.
This is a great opportunity for you and your group to live the idyllic cottage lifestyle in this astonishingly beautiful location.
Steady demand for prime recreational real estate promises to protect the long-term value of this property as a sound financial investment.
Surface and mining rights are included.
Vendor financing available.
