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

I stayed at Strathcona Park Lodge last night on the way back from Gold River and was pleased with the experience. Despite the fact that there were numerous school children there on a program, the dining room staff took the time to make sure that I was seated in the restaurant named after the owner, 'Myrna's, where it was quiet,...

Our family lived in the area over 40 years ago, and I have always wanted to come back and see the changes. The stay here only enhanced our visit. The cottage was very clean. The staff was very helpful in every way they could be and was willing to go the extra mile to make my stay the best possible.... More

We are six families originally from China, and were looking for some places to go for our Victoria long weekend. We went to the lodge and had a great time during our stay. The location and scenery are fabulous, the food was delicious and the staffs are very friendly. Especially, the activities were fantastic, all of the participants, whoever kids... More

We rearranged our entire schedule last August(2013) so we could stay for three days. We had stayed for a memorable week 13 years ago. Back then our cabin on the water was rustic but clean and comfortable. Our young kids had a ball even though it rained. This time our waterfront cottage was clean but ramshackle. The screens were torn,... More

We stayed for 4 nights and had booked with cottage #5 most likely the best location on the lodge grounds. The location was great and the views out to the lake and over to Gold River are stunning. However, the place is lacking maintenance and attention everywhere, be it the cottages outside or inside, everything is very seasoned and a... More

The views from our cabin I can't say enough (nature at its best). We had little to say about our cabins interior. We had carpenter ants crawling on us at night. Mouse trap left with its catch in it still many weeks old. Lack of any Teflon on fry pan. 1 toilet for a cabin that sleeps 12. Although the... More

I stayed at Strathcona Park Lodge in early May, and I had one of the best experiences of my life. My cottage was down by the water and the views were incredible. The cottage was rustic and quaint, and definitely had the "outdoor" feel (in a good way!). The bed was incredibly comfortable and I slept better than I have... More

We stayed in cabin 15 overlooking the lake. We found the resort to be outstanding. Staff were very friendly and helpful, the views are spectacular and the cabin was one of the best we have stayed in. This was a true highlight of our stay. The food was good and provincial park itself was wonderful. We really recommend this lodge.

The lodge is located just outside Strathcona Provincial Park. We reserved a "hotel" room in the Haig Brown building. The room itself was very basic (really one step up from camping), but it did have a deck (shared - not private) with nice view of the camp, lake and mountains. The surroundings are beautiful and the meals at the main... 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.
