What a fantastic place, Food was wonderful. “Chef ” Mary-Jo and Sous Chef’s Roger and Liz cooked their hearts out. I gained weight instead of losing it. Deserts to die for. The Hospitality was above and beyond, they were always looking at how they could improve our stay. Then the beautiful scenery, grounds and fantastic fishing made it over the top !!!! Thank you and see you again !!!

Thank you to Mary-Jo, Rodger and Liz for a wonderful time that we had this Aug at the resort. We stayed one week and I truly recommend this resort to others and we are planning on coming back next year. Best pizza we have ever eaten, all the food is gourmet , so if you dont want to cook you can enjoy amazing food. Lots of hot water for hot showers, laundry works great. So much area to explore in the great Canadian North!! The area has so much beauty to offer. Owners are amazing so helpful !! Thank you.

Couldn’t of had a better time if I tried here, the hospitality was outstanding, every time we ran into Mary jo and roger around the camp they always gave a smile and talked to us quickly, they went out of their way to make us feel at home and made sure we got everything we needed! The grounds are beautiful, well taken care of and organized, the views are breathtaking & I would recommend the resort to anyone looking for a perfect getaway. Fishing here was excellent as well! I can’t wait to go back! Thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!

Went there snowmobiling with a few friends (with slow sleds) and had a blast. Location is great! Trails are a stone throw away! (Zero road running) The food was absolutely amazing and made it worth every penny! I’ll be back!! Thanks for the homely hospitality.

Just returned from a sledding weekend at Elk Lake Wilderness Resort. Roger and Liz provided likely the best customer service I have EVER received. We arrived Friday night to a delicious home cooked Chicken and mashed potatoes dinner and were greeted with a smile and handshake.
I woke up to a flat tire on my truck Sat morning and after calling CAA and being told they would not come and change it, they needed to tow it to New Liskard (60km away) and would not return it after it was fixed, Roger offered to allow us to fix it in his shop with HIS tools. But it gets better. He insisted we go sledding and not to worry, he would help us later on as “we were on vacation” he said. I was so pleased he had offered to help us, as CAA who I pay for, could not. When we arrived back from sledding, Roger had changed my tire for me, found the leak in my flat and Liz had prepared some of the best Pizza I have ever had.
As a business owner myself, I was was amazed with the superior level of customer service that Elk Lake provided us with. Not only did they go above and beyond, but they did it with taste and character that you don’t get anywhere these days.
If your looking for a getaway at a great price and with genuine people who care about their customers, not to mention amazing food, you will find it here.
PS…the wood fired sauna is awesome and sledding was great!!!

Thank you guys so much, I will definitely return!

My family had a great time this weekend! The cabins are clean and cozy. The hospitality is incredible, they went above and beyond what we expected. The location is gorgeous and we even got to see the northern lights!

Close to trail, warm cozy cabins, sauna; and best food I’ve had since I have been at my cousin in laws. 
Brown bag lunches, coffee, and a place to hang your hat. 
Five stars
