My wife and I did not stay at the lodge, but we did canoe at the Outdoor Centre. We were looking for a canoe rental place where we did not have to transport the canoe ourselves. As far as we could tell, Strathcona was our only option. As it turns out, that worked to our advantage. We loved our experience.... More

Our family of six (five outdoors-loving adults and one child) spent three nights in cabin 7. With a bay for swimming right outside our door, a covered deck to enjoy the lake and mountain views, and everything we needed to cook simple meals for ourselves provided in the spacious cabin, we felt free to be as private or as social...

Rustic accommodations with spectacular views, activities including kayaking, canoeing, swimming, paddle-boarding, hiking, with more adventurous sports available. Get to the breakfast buffet early to avoid drier food—a 10:00 brunch arranged as part of wedding celebrations was a disappointment. Wedding reception fare was very nice, being prepared specifically for the gathering. Great staff, a sense of community, and an altogether splendid... More

We were just staying overnight…reserved a forest view with queen and bunk beds. What we got was a small garret up three steep staircases for an 83 year old to climb, a bed which was nestled under the rafters upon which you bumped your head when you got up. We should have complained earlier…c'est la vie!

We came all the way from the UK for a stereo typical log cabin by the lake and we were not disappointed. We had booked cabin 5 which overlooked the lake and offered privacy and a calm, relaxing outlook on the stunning scenery. Kitchen was small but had everything we needed. Joined in the BBQ one night, delicious salmon, but... More

We recently revisited Strathcona Park Lodge and were relieved to find its unique spirit undiminished. We had arrived at Family Camp 15 years ago, with 2 sons of very different temperaments. They were both folded seamlessly into team-building, guided risk-taking and individualized encouragement that left them both walking taller by the week’s end. Our younger son was easily demoralized by... More

My husband and I stayed at the Strathcona Park Lodge for 2 nights recently. We choose the lodge due to its proximity to Strathcona Park because we planned to do some hiking. It was located on a very pretty lake and our room had a beautiful view. We expected the lodge to be rustic, and it definitely was. It was... More

Stayed here for a wedding. We were in the Outdoor Centre building - one outlet in the room and none in the bathroom - not well received by three women trying to do their hair for the wedding. No A/C which we knew ahead of time however, we were on the second floor, the temperature soared to over 36* C... More

Our birdwatching group stayed here recently as part of our 2 days of exploration of the Park. The Lodge is nestled amongst the mature tree plantings that include Saskatoon bushes-which cedar waxwings and robins were busily stripping of berries while we watched from our comfortable dining table just a few yards away! The staff are so friendly, the food great,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At Strathcona Park Lodge, on the edge of the vast wilderness of Strathcona Park, the possibilities for breathing in the restorative powers of nature are as many as the adventure options. Overlooking the shores of Upper Campbell Lake and a procession of snow-capped peaks, our accommodations consist of an eclectic collection of log and timber-framed chalets and waterfront cottages, with no television, cell phone or internet access from the rooms to disturb the natural tranquility.
