The Poplars Resort has been in business, catering to fishermen and their families for over 85 years. 2014 was a successful season for owners Rick and Joan White. As always, we look forward to meeting new and returning guests in 2015. Generations of fishermen have returned to enjoy the great fishing, superb meals and friendly atmosphere.

Let's talk fishing at our new blog.

The Location:

The Poplars Resort is located on Newboro Lake within the village of Newboro. Newboro Lake is the largest of seven connecting lakes (approximately 9 miles x 9 miles of fresh water full of fishing opportunities). The lake is known for its bass fishing, including both large and smallmouth, northern pike as well as pan fish. The lake is located in the Heart of the Rideau Lake System, an historic waterway linking Ottawa, the Nation's capital with Lake Ontario. Here you will find exceptional boating, wildlife, and quiet relaxation as well as great fishing.

The main lodge offers a large living room with cable TV and DVD with numerous videos. The check-in area and office are here also. The screened porch is available to all guests, as well as a card room and abundant supply of books. Three meals a day are served in our dining room which overlooks the water. You have the opportunity to take a picnic lunch if you want an uninterrupted day of fishing or sightseeing. During the summer months, weather permitting, we have a weekly "cook-out" when dinner is served outdoors (a nice break for the guests as well as the staff!). Birthdays and anniversaries are celebrated with a baked Alaska for your party. The meals are prepared in our own kitchen - they are appetizing and tasty. All baking is done on the premises and might even be better than Mom's.

The waterfront is well equipped. Here you will find help docking, advice on finding fish, fish cleaning and freezing facilities. There is no charge for dockage. The municipal launching ramp is close-by and we provide help with launching and trailer storage.
