Our Lodge

Start Your Algonquin Adventure From Here!

Our Lodge is designed for our complete outfitting and repeat rental customers. Located at 15 Main Street in Kearney Ontario, directly across from the Algonquin Park permit office.

Staying at our basecamp will give you and your group a chance to plan, prepare, and relax, before departing the following morning for your trip! It also allows us to spend time with our complete outfitting groups to provide some education and go over all of your gear. You could also stay with us at the end of your canoe trip to have a hot shower, good food and a cold beer. Then hit the highway feeling clean and fresh in the morning!
