The Gold Fox Lodge is located nearest to Luzerne, MI (between Grayling and Mio) in the heart of the AuSable River valley. Besides having plentiful Big Creek trout and wildlife to entertain you right outside your back door - you're also only a few minutes from the famous AuSable River - home of the "Holy Waters". In the warmer months common outdoor activities in the region include fishing, hiking, bird watching, canoeing, kayaking, tubing, golfing, ATV trail riding, and horseback riding. In the winter months things don't slow down as the temperatures, snowfall, and terrain make an ideal winter wonderland for hunting, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and even downhill skiing. The area is rich with outfitters supporting your canoe, kayak, tube, ATV, snowmobile, horseback, skiing, and fishing interests; along with other convenient services such as car spotting and livery options to maximize your vacation experience.
Fly fishing enthusiasts have long considered the Au Sable region as a must visit destination. As chronicled in "Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die" you'll quickly appreciate the romance of this region. Experience the Holy Waters, Masons Tract of the South Branch, North Branch of the AuSable, Mio Trophy Water, and famous Hex Hatch. In fact, it was the beauty of this region and quality of trout fishing that led to the formation of our nation's first Trout Unlimited chapter in 1959 by Au Sable river anglers.
