Something of a once in lifetime experience. I’ve never been so close to so many really big bears. We enjoyed the whole experience immensely. With the exception of the girl working the counter at the trading post, all the rangers and lodge employees were exceptionally nice and helpful. Glad we went in September since I don’t think I would have liked the bugs of early summer.
We stayed two nights. The lodging was was expensive and somewhat minimalist. I think there may be approximately 35 cabins and lodge rooms. The lodge rooms are in a single building detached from the bar and dining room. This building has about five or six rooms on each side. Minimal sound insulation between rooms. The remainder of the lodging units are individual cabins. If I had it to do again, I would have asked for one of the cabins since I think the rate is the same.
Food at the buffet was very good (a surprise). There is often fog on the lake in the morning. We didn't have any problem when we left but the people leaving the day before were delayed about four hours (we would have missed our airline connection if we would have left on that day). I will probably never go back but am so glad that I finally got around to going to Brooks camp.
