All of our trips are intended for you to have a good time and enjoy the natural beauty of this special place. We expect all guests to be respectful and mindful of their impact on the land, other visitors, and wildlife. Please have a look at our rules to make sure we’re all on the same page before booking.
After gearing up at the main parking lot, you will drive to the trailhead at the North Lane Lot which takes about 5-10 minutes. You can then unload from your vehicle and set off on the trail towards McFee Lake. This is a moderately challenging 5.5km hike which should take between 2-2.5hrs. On your hike you will cross through wetlands on boardwalks and pass McFee and Buttermilk Lakes, which are nice little stops for a snack break.
Once you’ve arrived at Chain Lake you can load up your gear into the canoes that will be waiting for you and take off for a short and easy 500m paddle which will take 10-15 minutes. You will reach campsite Chain-85 where you can unpack your gear and settle in for the evening.

All of our trip prices are per group. This means that the listed price is what you pay and you decide how many guests to bring up to the max. group size.
Contact us if you plan to come with 1-2 people and we may be able to offer a reduced price!
All of our online bookings are subject to a 6% reservation fee. We have included this fee in our prices so that the final price you are paying is what is listed on our website + hst.
At all of our campsites we have created some designated spaces that are flat and suitable for up to 4 person tents.
Feel free to get creative and find another spot to set up if you need to bring more tents than the listed number of tent pads.
There aren’t washrooms as you’d expect in your home, but there are outdoor privy boxes / thunder boxes / treasures chests (they have many names). These are essentially outhouses without walls, but they have great views.
