I just wanted to tell you briefly about the wonderful place Strathcona is for a wedding. We got married in August last year and can't describe how magical it was. We recently got our video back which was expertly done by Paul Christopher and it showed the scenery in all its glory. Beyond the venue the staff were amazing too,... More

We had a family reunion here several years ago for about 50 people. The staff was fantastic and helpful. We have many fond memories and can't wait to go back! We hiked, zip lined, kayaked, and had a fantastic salmon bake dinner for the whole family. The only advice is to wear pants when you are sitting by the campfire... More

This place is totally beautiful! The cottage sits right on the lake with a view over the wooded peaks of Vancouver Island. We were a family of 5 and stayed in Cottage 8 which had a full kitchen, as well as 2 baths and 2 bedrooms and fold out couch. We hiked and rented motorboats to explore the lake. It... More

The hike was expertly organised by Strathcona Park Lodge, Tessa our guide was magnificent. The hike was strenuous but wonderful, the packs heavy but manageable. I wouldn't have missed it for the world, what a beautiful place. The lodge was a great place to relax after the hike, all the staff were so friendly it was like staying with a... More

The hikes from the lodge... More

Strathcona Park. Lodge is a professionally run wilderness lodge. The accommodation is varied. You can have a new cabin with ensuite situated on the water or a budget option in a single room, the choice is yours. A highlight of the lodging is their food fair. The food is locally sourced and prepared by excellent chefs. You have the choice... More

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!
