Connect, respect, ripple effect
Nestled on the shores of Upper Campbell Lake, our off-grid wilderness retreat and multi-sport haven boast 160-acres of secluded waterfront, hiking trails and activity-based infrastructure. Our eclectic accommodation, stunning location and expertise in outdoor education keeps people coming back year after year — and they bring their friends.
Located just outside of Strathcona Provincial Park, we often act as a base camp and resource for adventurers exploring further afield. Our backyard is full of possibilities, whether it’s a day trip or multi-day expedition you’re looking for – from hiking to mountaineering, paddling rivers, lakes or ocean, forest bathing to waterfall viewing. Talk to us about guided adventures and developing your outdoor skills with our talented instructors.
Off The Grid
Keeping outdoor tourism sustainable for the generations to come. As a self-contained community operating entirely off-grid, we have been recognized internationally for our environmental initiatives. At the heart of our value system is the idea of doing more with less, and this applies to all levels of our operation.
Food and Dining Philosophy
We work with local farms and fisheries to find the best ingredients possible. Our menus change every day to reflect what’s local and in season and our talented Chefs are always creating and innovating new and delicious offerings. In 2021, we are offering wonderful food that is good for you and the planet, usually a small menu offered for meals at set times, and take out picnics.
Things To Do
Rent a boat or stand up paddleboard to explore beautiful Upper Campbell Lake, hire a guide to lead you through a session on the high ropes course, take you outdoor rock climbing, or for some guiding hiking in Strathcona Provincial Park, or simply enjoy a bonfire, a favourite drink, and some stargazing outside your cottage with your nearest and dearest. There are endless ways to tailor your experience and enjoy your time with us.
Backpacking in Strathcona Park would not be the same without also spending at least a few days at the Strathcona Park Lodge. The incredible food, invigorating lake, spectacular sunsets, night skies and knowledgeable and friendly staff - especially when playing a game of kayak soccer - add to the wonderful surroundings. Our kids have had incredible adventures at their summer camp, and we have shared many wonderful family moments exploring and learning. Strathcona Park Lodge is a special place and we look forward to visiting every year.
