Amogla Camp is closed to the public for the foreseeable future
2005 was the last year of regular operation for Amogla camp. My dad turned 72 that year, and my mom 64, and they decided it was time to retire from actively operating the camp.
The camp has not been sold, and there is no plan to sell it for the foreseeable future. Perhaps it will be open to tourists again at some point in the future, although there are no plans at present.
If or when the camp does reopen for tourists, this website will be updated.
(Update 2016) I'm sometimes asked, by people who used to come to the camp, if there are any other cottages nearby that can be rented. And very close to Amogla camp is the MacKenzie's cottage which can be rented on a weekly basis. Amogla camp is still closed.
Amogla camp is in the middle of Algoma district. The name is actually just 'Algoma' spelled backwards. Amogla camp is on Rock Lake, about 80 km east of Sault Ste Marie.
People came to Amogla Camp mostly from around Ohio, and they come mostly to relax and fish. Rock Lake is particularly good for Walleye, as it is very deep. The best fishing season on Rock Lake is always a few weeks later than surrounding lakes as it stays cool longer on account of its depth.
The cliff behind the cottage is one of two cliffs that border the small valley where the camp is situated. Radio reception is poor, and you can forget about cell phones and pagers.
The cliff behind the house is very spectacular, but easy to get up on, unless of course you are a rock climber and need to go up the face of it. Its not very suitable for rock climbing, as it is extremely solid igneous rock, and offers few cracks as hand-holds.
