About Camp JD

Camp JD was founded in 1959 by John Dyrczon, my wife Anne’s father. Since that time it has grown into a marina with covered & open stalls. There are 9 camps situated on the north end of Nighthawk Lake at the mouth of the Fredrick house river. We also have plenty of unserviced parking spots for RVs or tenters. We are located on Hwy 101 east approx. 25km from Matheson Ont. & approx. 30 km. east of Timmins Ont. At Camp JD you can enjoy fishing on Nighthawk Lake or the Frederickhouse river. Fish in these waters include Pike, Pickerel, White fish & Sager. You can use your boat or fish right off of shore. It is not uncommon to view wildlife right at the camp. It is also a resting point for migratory birds such as ducks, geese, herons & cranes. Camp JD is also a established Black Bear outfitter.
