Five-Star Hospitality

Enjoy friends, family, and a cold drink in a wilderness atmosphere.

Imagine yourself bellied up to the bar with a chilled glass of ice cold Moosehead beer, watching your group’s fishing photos scroll by on a flat-screen TV, all the while enjoying each other’s fishing stories from the day.

Spacious Lodge


Welcome to the heart of camp.

The spacious Lodge is log built with a 2-story high ceiling, roaring fireplace, wood stove, comfortable couches and chairs, and a million-dollar view of the Lake. In addition to the dining area where you'll enjoy our Five-Star meals, there's a licensed bar, fresh made popcorn, Wi-Fi, satellite TV during the evenings, ice machines, and a fully stocked tackle & souvenir shop.
