The property has been designed and built with the belief that ease of operation during any season is the key to a well run operation. All buildings are on surveyed deeded lots and the airstrip is “private“ category multi year lease from Saskatchewan Environment & Resource Management along with the boathouse and dock. The licensed outfitting area is 35 square miles. From the dock there is water access to Meanwell Lake, Mirror River, Clearwater River, Dell Lake and Lloyd Lake. There is also trail access to Dell Lake, Dycke Lake, Cree Lake Road, Uhrich River and in winter the Semchuck Trail. On top of all that there are many secondary trails to great exploration spots.

We have been major advocates of shooting wildlife with cameras and following tracks of the wide variety of wildlife for the past 30 years. Everything from wolverines, caribou, moose, fox, bears, lynx, otters, martin are constantly spotted and tracked. There is just too much waterfowl to name them all and are great to observe. Fishing is great for pike and walleye plus we recently found lake trout and artic grayling while exploring the many lakes and rivers.
We cater to all types of exploration in the Athabasca sand basin from Radon gathering to Electronic surveys to Drilling. We have hosted airborne surveys, ground surveys and drillers using skidders to Helicopter transported drill rigs. When u require a great base to work out of we are it. There is no other lodge that can provide what we have to offer at reasonable rates. We will do all we can to accommodate your program including logistics.
