Clifton Lake Classic Outpost – A unique fishery, a unique outpost

In the past, Ganglers has been approached by many anglers looking to experience the magic of the North Seal yet in a standard outpost setting. Our deluxe outposts at Bain, Stevens, and Burnie rival and surpass many main lodges, with ice machines, Satellite phones, custom boats , etc. and certainly don’t qualify as rustic. Ganglers’ guests now have that option with our new rustic outpost camp on a lake that is already legendary with many Ganglers guests, Clifton Lake.

It has a great mix of every type of water and structure imaginable. This lake has been featured on TV with the In-Fishermen, Walkers Cay, North American Fishermen, and Cabelas. It also offers access to Wilke Lake, another large lake. The countryside is gorgeous, almost park-like, with a large sand esker running through the middle of the lake and an abundance of wildlife.

Offering the best of the North Seal, Clifton Lake Outpost is already a legendary camp.
