Thompson Camps offers a great location on Otter Lake, part of the Churchill River System in the Shield Boreal Forest of Saskatchewan. The cabin was a large modern 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom detached unit with full fridge and stove inside. Outside was deck, with BBQ and fantastic view of the Lake and Forest. Service with guides, boats, shore lunches were all above average.
The only down side was they were short dock staff a couple of days so we had to dock and tie up boat on return ourselves, not a problem though.
This is a rather expensive outfitter for August fishing in Sask. but you do get value for your dollar in comfort and peace of mind. For families the pontoon boats they have would be fantastic for fishing and sightseeing.
