Greetings from the wonderful state of Wisconsin, home of the “awesomeest” Green Bay Packers! (Brett who???). It is our pleasure to be the guest bloggers on Dave’s blog this week. Allow us to introduce ourselves….Sandy teaches EMS (very recently retired lucky her) and is the supervising nurse at a girls summer camp (patience of aContinue Reading

Bye, bye bachelor life

Tomorrow (6/23) will officially signal the end of the early season bachelor life for me as the “estrogen invasion” is on it’s way. The three girls (Megan, Emily and Allison) are travelling with friends and are scheduled to arrive tomorrow. Milissa and Sara will also be arriving this week, but have been delayed just aContinue Reading

Summer slowdown, fishing?

Hopefully no one read this and thought I was talking about the fishing! Actually, the fishing has been holding up pretty good with all the sun, heat and humidity last week. Fran and Mary VanHoorweghe would certainly attest to that. Despite losing about a day and a half of their trip to really crummy weather, FranContinue Reading

Holbrook Family returns to Peffley’s Wilderness Camp

Hi everyone. Although every single week of camp is special in it’s own way, last week in camp was extra special. The Holbrook family (Adam-Dad, Michelle-Mom, CJ-15, Ben-11, and twin sisters Sara and Tara-9) from Roann, Indiana were special guests of Peffley’s Camp again this year. Many of you may recall that the Holbrooks wereContinue Reading

Warm enough for ya?

Chances are if you are from almost anywhere in the midwest U.S. your answer is “yes”. It really hasn’t been much better here to be honest. Temps in the upper 70’s to mid 80’s with very high humidity has made it just a little“sticky” the past couple of weeks in camp. The fish don’t seem toContinue Reading

Never too late…..trip planning

To plan and have an excellent trip to camp. Just ask Don Raveling (Minnesota) and his son Steve (Arkansas) who just booked a trip to camp in the two man cabin (all that was available) last week. Don had picked up a brochure of ours at the NW Sportshow in Minneapolis three years ago andContinue Reading

A time to heal…visit from big brother

My brother Gary, who some of you have met in camp through the years, had an opportunity to visit with me in camp at the end of the season this year. Diagnosed and having been treated for colorectal cancer the last year and a half had made a visit to camp last year impossible forContinue Reading

2010- A season of memories…..

Sandwiched between Don Strafford’s 49th consecutive year in camp (opening week) and Jim Wertz’s group first ever visit to Canada during week 19 of the season, was another incredible season of fishing, friendship, fun and memories at Peffley’s Camp. New faces blended in with the regulars week in and out, to enjoy the splendor ofContinue Reading

Happy Veterans Day

We often find things to blog about during the “offseason” to be quite challenging. Outside of camp life, I guess we just don’t lead very exciting lives! Milissa and I were just talking the other night about posting a wish for a Happy Veterans Day to all of those who have bravely served in theContinue Reading

Peffley's Wilderness Camp is a family owned and operated camp. Dave has been fishing Wabaskang Lake for over 25 years and was previously a guest of this camp for 12 years prior to purchasing the camp in 2005. I am a proud supporter of our military and offer a nice discount during the month of July to our guests who have also served. I have three daughters ranging in ages from 16-21 who spend much of their summer with us in camp and have totally embraced the wilderness experience we offer. They have for years referred to it as the "best summer experience ever".

While rarely necessary on our lake, because I do have a very good working knowledge on how and where to fish on Wabaskang Lake and our portage waters, I will guide groups if asked to. Otherwise, I am always happy to share information with our guests and provide them well marked lake maps so they can start catching fish their first day in camp.

I pride myself on running a very clean and well managed camp with your satisfaction our top priority. Many guests who have fished from this camp for over 20 years, and several more that have fished here for over 30 years and even some over 40 years.
