If you want a true fishing experience, you’ll love fishing at Kirk Kove Cottage Resort located in the Land O’ Lakes Region of Ontario. Kirk Kove is located on Big Gull Lake- a large pristine lake on the Canadian Shield full of walleye and bass. This unspoiled, crystal clear water is one of the last natural preserved areas of Ontario. At Kirk Kove we are much more than fishing. You can also enjoy Big Gull Lake with a kayak or canoe as well as go tubing, water skiing and maybe having a picnic on the many islands.
Enjoy privacy, peace and quiet from our location at the end of a quaint country road. Although our location is remote we are very accessible to the United States, Ottawa, Kingston and Toronto areas. We have been serving our American and Canadian friends with their family and fishing vacations for over 80 years. We have friends of Kirk Kove that have been here over 60 consecutive years.
The innovative Kirk Kove Ski shows of the 50s and 60s are now just memories but the generations of clientele continue to give the resort a unique feel of familiarity and friendliness. Come and enjoy the friendliness at Kirk Kove which has kept visitors returning for generations! See a few of our many guest's comments.

Big Gull Lake is a large spring fed headwater lake of the Mississippi River System. The Lake has a excellent reputation for walleye and bass fishing and scenic beauty. The walleye and bass thrive in this lake due to its irregular bottom, bays and islands. The Lake is surrounded by thousands of acres of Crown Land offering many picturesque campsites to visit, picnic, swim or bring your easel or camera to capture the memory.
