What are your preferred arrival / departure times?

All guests are to arrive on Saturday between 12pm and 2pm.  If you are not able to arrive on Saturday please inform us so we can plan ahead.

All guests are to depart at 9am the following Saturday.  Many of our guests leave Friday night or before breakfast on Saturday morning to beat the border traffic.  We can make arrangements for you to leave at anytime before 9am Saturday if needed.
**The hours between 9am and noon (on Saturday) are reserved for cleaning cabins, organizing boats, preparing meals, etc.
PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE BEFORE NOON……IT WILL NOT GET YOU OUT FISHING FASTER! (see below)
**All guests must attend orientation.  Orientation will be at 2:30 unless otherwise told when you arrive at camp.  BOATS WILL NOT BE GIVEN OUT UNTIL AFTER ORIENTATION.
Boaters Safety (required by Canadian Government for all guests operating our camp boats) will be after general orientation.  If all guests arrive by noon it is likely that orientation will by at 12:30, etc.

Do you require a deposit?

Yes, we require at least a $100.00 (fishing) $600.00 (hunting) non-refundable deposit for each person in your group. This deposit confirms and holds your cabin and boat for the week. Hunters will also have additional deposits due.  PLEASE REFER TO LODGING AND RATES PAGE FOR MORE INFO.

**Hunters**  The above is for 2017 and 2018 hunts.  If booking hunts after those dates then your deposit is 1/3 of the total cost of the trip.  This is unknown currently for 2019 and further as those rates are TBD still.

Are there refunds for bad weather?

Unfortunately we do not give refunds or discounts for inclement weather or difficult fishing conditions. Mother Nature sets her own schedule and we can not control what she throws at us from week to week. If you bring up the appropriate clothing; quality rain gear, waterproof boots, a positive attitude, and a sense of adventure, you should be able to catch fish in any type of weather. Also, do not feel bad if you just hang out in your cabin or our main lodge play games, read, share stories with good friends, or take a well deserved nap – after all, you are on vacation.
