Sunset on Rice Lake.
Camp Cherokee is a family oriented fishing camp on the north shore of Rice Lake. We offer 12 housekeeping cabins, all with three-piece bathrooms with showers and full kitchens, including fridge, stove, freezer, coffee maker and microwave.
A restaurant and convenience store is right next door, and if you want to do some serious shopping, the City of Peterborough is just 15 minutes away.
Camp Cherokee features a large picnic shelter with gas grills, fish-cleaning huts, and we even have an automatic fish-scaler.
Rice Lake is a fisherman's paradise, 22 miles long and three miles wide at the widest point (where Camp Cherokee is located). It has an abundance of panfish, which in turn support healthy populations of pickerel (walleye), bass and muskie. There are also some very large carp.
Immediately east of Camp Cherokee are the remains of a railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century. The bridge lasted only a few years before it was destroyed by shifting ice during the spring break-up, but the rock pilings built a century and a half ago remain, providing an ideal fish habitat.
