It's closing time.

Red Indian Lodge in Sioux Narrows has officially closed its doors.

The resort had operated on Lake of the Woods for close to 70 years, often using members from nearby First Nations as guides.

Dear Red Indian Lodge family,

Red Indian Lodge has been a premier fishing destination for almost 70 years. For the last 45 of those years, we have had the privilege of providing you with excellent service, a beautiful property, and exciting fishing. Unfortunately, changes in the travel industry in the last decade have affected resort travel to the point that, like many other resorts in the Sioux Narrows area, Red Indian Lodge is closing its doors. With regrets, we announce that 2017 was our final year of business. We greatly appreciate the business you have provided us with over these many years. We will miss the friendship, warmth and loyalty of our guests and friends. We cherish the memories you have helped us to make and hope you will cherish them as well. Thank you for being a part of the Red Indian Lodge journey. May you have many safe travels and may there always be a fish at the end of your line!

The Hoffman and Kabel families.

Note: We have left the My RIL link live above so you can savor photos from your favorite memories a while longer.
