Gates Lodge is a classic American fly fishing destination, enjoyed by generations of anglers. It keeps getting better and better without losing it’s simple charm. A fly fishing lodge run by friendly and knowledgeable fly fishermen.
Many of our guests return year after year, some since the very beginning years of the lodge. We’re just large enough to accommodate every need, yet small enough that we get to know most of our guests by name. Come experience a truly relaxing and comfortable stay at the very heart of Michigan’s fly-fishing nirvana.
The local newspaper maintains an extensive community calendar that you can check out as well.
Some of our favorite local places to visit with the family include:
Don’t hesitate to ask us about activities and places to visit for your family. We can also direct you to other areas in Northern Michigan such as Traverse City, which is less than two hours away from our lodge. Mackinac Island is also much closer than you might think, so a day trip to “the island” is very feasible. Those options alone open up a whole world of possibilities for you and your family.
The Board Room is available for rent for meetings and conferences for $100/day. It is still the central office of the Anglers of the Au Sable.
