• Hey all! Been a long usual! Hope this finds everyone in good health and doing their part to stop the spread of this terrible virus! On that note we just wanted to publish something for you all to let you know we are all good here at the lodge. The kids are now out of school and hunkered down with us here. Things haven't hit yet here and Red Lake... But its coming. Our kids have been mandated out of school for 3 week, but now there is talk of them not even going back to school to finish out the year! Eeek! Our restaurants are all closed to the public and are only excepting take out orders, and some of our local businesses have closed their doors and have taken work home with them. I have only been out to get the mail and groceries as we need them. But the kids are happy, even though our hockey season is over and Jemma's dance season is postponed. The kids are keeping busy with ice fishing, skiing, puzzles and board games. Jemma is getting a little tired of this... but we must do what we have to do to keep safe! Ian's mom and dad (Ron and Kathy) are keeping safe as well. Ron says there is no better place to be than where we are. He is cutting wood like a bandit! LOL My parents (Dennis and Val) are hunkered down at their place in Winnipeg as my mom has a compromised immune system and Dennis is pushing 80! Our borders closed yesterday to non-essential travel (which includes you all). We are optimistic things will change by the end of May. Please feel free to contact up with any questions or concerns. We are praying that this virus gets stomped out and all of our lives can get back to normal! So please do your due diligence to help stop the spread. We want to make sure you get to come visit this summer! Stay safe everyone! Look forward to seeing you in the summer!

Spring Fishing

By |May 15th, 2017|

So our first group came just as the ice was leaving the lake and it snowed for 3 days slowing the fishing down a bit.  They still managed to boat some nice fish, biggest being 42″.  

As weather last week got warmer the bite picked up, and the one group had a personal best […]

Opening season is just around the corner!

Sorry it has been so long!  Our site was down for a while and I am not the most computer “literate” person, so with a few calls we are all good to go!  

So I guess it has been a while for some of you if you don’t belong to Facebook!  It is so […]

Getting Geared Up For The Shows!

By |December 1st, 2016|

It’s that time of year again!  Where does the time go?  It has been a fantastic fall for us at the camp with this mild weather and lack of snow!  Although the kids will tell you different!  They are waiting on the snow so they can break out the sleds and the skates for […]

Fall is here!

By |September 26th, 2016|

So it is time to start thinking about closing things up for the winter.  It has been pretty wet here.  I think all you Iowa people are sending your rain our way!

The fall fishing has been stellar as always.  Some big fish caught in the last few weeks.  We had one group pull a […]
