Set on the edge of Upper Campbell Lake, just minutes from the entrance to the provincial park, the Lodge offers a multi-sport Mecca. Whitewater paddling, sport climbing, hiking trails, canoe circuits, sea kayaking destinations and mountain biking areas are all easily accessible from our location. The Lodge itself has excellent swimming in the summer, hiking and running trails year-round, and boasts stunning views down the Elk River Delta.


Strathcona has a solid reputation throughout the tourism and guiding industry in British Columbia and Canada. Almost every guide company in B.C. has hired a Strathcona Park Lodge instructor at some point. Our alumni can be found in influential positions throughout the outdoor industry.




Housekeepers have a keen eye for detail, and don’t mind constantly moving throughout the day. Housekeeping staff work independently and as part of a team.  These are physically demanding jobs due to the nature of the property, and the job itself.
