The Mud Creek Club began its existence as North America’s premiere hunting club back in 1807 when King George III deeded some 2,000 acres on the northeast side of Lake St. Clair to the Earl of Selkirk.

The club, after several owners was purchased in 1963 by the auto magnate Henry Ford II, and thus the beautifully appointed clubhouse was built. It served as Mr. Ford’s retreat until 1977 when the present owners purchased the property and for the first time made it available to a select few hunters who wanted to experience duck hunting at its very best.

The accommodations naturally are first class, with our gourmet chef keeping the meals at the same level as the rest of the “Mud Creek Club” experience.

Conveniently located in Southwestern Ontario, we are in the centre of the flyways. Professional guides, retriever dogs, and a friendly personalized service are offered to individual parties of no more than six hunters, two times per week. Lodging and meals are available separately.

By limiting the number of hunters, we can guarantee the sojourn spent at Mud Creek Club to be an unforgettable experience.

Now, and Then – Mud Creek Club

By Anita Markert

Imagine travelling off the beaten path to a private retreat with spectacular marshlands and tree-lined walking trails. Rich, black earth farmland order a section of the property. Tranquil mornings. Breathtaking sunsets. A winding river weave their paths through the landscape. Birds in flight. And at day’s end you marvel at the charm of the century-old willow trees shading a magnificent pond that serves as your view from the comfort of the property’s graceful lodge.

What I’m describing only begins to

touch on the experience of connecting with the natural beauty of a local gem known as the historic Mud Creek Club.

The portion of Chatham-Kent that would become the Mud Creek Club began its existence in 1807 when King George the III deeded approximately 2,000 acres on the North East side of Lake St. Clair near Mitchell’s Day to the Earl of Selkirk.

The club itself was formed in 1877 as a hunting destination, complete with the charm of a rustic clubhouse for the founding

members and guests  who travelled from across North America during the hunting and fishing season.

During the late 1960’s the old clubhouse was replaced with the current lodge by then-owner Henry Ford II. The new lodge was designed to offer top-notch accommodations while maintaining the warmth and comfort of a countryside retreat.

In the spring of 1977, ownership changed hands when Chatham residents Sileno and Maria Corsini purchased the property from

Henry Ford II. Today their son Carlo  and his partners are the proud owners of this incredible lodge and property.

One of the prized legacies of the club is the guest book, which was first introduced in August 1877 as a journal to record the number of fish and birds taken daily by sportsmen. By 1881, the guests themselves began entering personal comments with fond memories of their experience. The tradition continues in the original guestbook to this day.
