The Outpost camp is tucked away in a beautiful and secluded part of Otukamamoan Lake

with its own sheltered bay. There are no other camps or cabins in the vicinity and you can often see a wide variety of wildlife without even stepping off the deck.

When you are our guest, the camp is exclusive to your group and no one else. Your host, Chuck Beck, will be with the group the entire time and goes fishing with you every day. Don't worry... we do not just dump you in the wilderness and leave you to fend for yourself or find the fish on your own.


This is not a five-star hotel; it is a rustic outpost cabin in the wilderness. The camp has four buildings: the main cabin, a tool shed, a gashouse and a "NEW" privy. The cabin has a full kitchen and dining room, three bedrooms with eight individual beds/bunks, a living room with a couch and poker table, a front porch and a full deck for you to enjoy the wilderness from. Few things beat getting up and having a cup of fresh "camp" coffee while watching the sunrise over the lake.

Our camp offers numerous amenities despite the rustic setting. We have two gas refrigerators, a gas stove, a generator for electric lights and fans, hot and cold running water, an indoor hot water shower, a deep fat fryer and a gas grill/griddle.


Every morning after a good breakfast, we'll head to the lake to fish and catch a batch of fresh Walleye for lunch. Around noon we'll head back to camp or to one of our favorite shore lunch sites for a delicious meal of our fresh catch. Fishing is usually slower in the afternoon, which allows time for napping, exploring the wilderness or hiking a logging trail. After dinner, we'll head back out on the water for the evening bite. Around dark, we'll head back to camp and relax, enjoy the sunset, sit around a fire, tell fish stories and play cards before heading off to bed.


We have a cell phone booster connected to a tower that works with most phones in the cabin. If you decide to take a phone with you, tell your family to call your number first. If they cannot get through, they can try your host’s cell phone at (515) 450-3701. Please tell your loved ones that they should only call in case of an emergency. The best time for them to call you at camp is between 6–7 AM and 9-10 PM.
