My wife bought me a wonderful birthday gift of an 8 hour guided fishing trip. Turned out to be a wonderful day for our guide. We first had to buy minnows even though we wanted to fish for pike. Then we spent all except 20 minutes fishing for walleye, or rather we watched our guide catch fish. I had to put in and take out the anchor all day, we didn't get a shore lunch even though that was supposed to be the highlight of the day, I had to bait my wife's hook, and take off all but one of her fish. We didn't keep any pike and fortunately between my wife and I we caught three small walleye as this was all we got to take home while our guide took about ten walleye home. And the kicker was, WE paid for the guides minnows and we had to pay for the ice. Basically we paid for the guide to have a nice day of fishing and a nice feed of fish for his family. Won't be back again!!!

We have been to Thompson's Camp twice now and we really enjoyed it both times. Our latest trip was the first week of June. We took a canoe trip and did some fishing on our own one day! Then we went fishing with Dylan one of Thompson's Camps guides, wow we had a wonderful time with him and caught a ton of fish. We caught a Northern Pike that was over 40" long and over 20 pounds, that was fun! We always stay in a one bedroom lake shore unit, they have a small kitchen area, with a futon and then a bathroom and queen size bed. Nice little units and we were also allowed to take our dog. We would definately recommend Thompson's Camps to anyone who wants to experience a great fishing trip and experience the outdoors.

Nice log cabins, a great place to stay to get out on the lake and enjoy some downtime. A bit of a drive to get there, but so worth it to get away. Great for couples or families, lots of room, plus barbeques and firewood!

Been going to Thompson’s for several years (some of the group over 30 years). Always a great time, the fishing is good, we always limit out. The staff is friendly and helpful, the cabins are good and provide everything you need. There is usually a group of 8-10 of us and we come each and every year to this same spot.

We always take a couple of 18' Aluminums and the pontoon boat. Love that pontoon boat, sit back, have a few drinks and catch some fish.......

Note to the one review: This is not a 5 star hotel, if that is what you are looking for take a fishing trip in Down Town Vancouver. This is a fishing camp and you get exactly what you expect.

The rate is based on a charge per person, so going with children adds a big expense. Cabins are sparsely furnished - suitable maybe for all-male fishermen sharing costs. No maid service - we had to clean even when we moved in.
We requested a cabin at the lowest offered price and found it to be a "loss-leader". Front door couldn't be opened, a lot of it needed serious maintenance. So we had to go to higher priced cabin. Restaurant needs to offer children-sized meals and maybe "seniors" sizes too. Wasted a lot of expensive food.
Area is gorgeous, but needs some competition
