Frequently Asked Questions
Are you pet friendly?
Yes. Only 2 of the tents are pet friendly (Yoho and Fay) and there is a $35 pet fee that must be selected at the time of booking. We only allow 2 dogs on our property at any given time (in addition to our golden retriever who often makes guest appearances at camp). Please make sure your pet is under control at all times and friendly with other furry creatures, kiddos and humans. Dogs (and their owners) who are not under control (excessive barking, guests complaining about your dog, etc) will be asked to leave the property, and no refunds will be issued. Only 1 dog per pet friendly tent.
Can kids come too?
The tent's wood stove and most amenities are heated by fire, and there are no gates around it. Tents are also canvas and noise would travel between the tents at night. For these reasons, Camp Moose Trail is more appropriately suited to kids aged 6+.
What are the physical requirements for guests of the camp?
Once parked, you will be required to walk about 200 meters to the camp on trail of varying terrain. Depending on the season, there could be snow, ice or mud. The tents, kitchen tent, and outhouse all have steps to walk up. It could be challenging to those not comfortable on uneven terrain and may be hard if guests have mobility impairments. We always recommend season and weather appropriate footwear for walking on trails (hiking shoes/boots, or running shoes) and slippers or hut booties for your tent.
Are there really bears out there?
Yes, 100%. We frequently see them. Please make sure you familiarize yourself with the Wildlife Section of the website for more information about how to co-exist with wildlife. But don't EVER leave any feed in your near your tent. All food must be stored away in the bear hangs on site. It isn't a bad idea to have bear spray with you as well, especially if you plan on heading out for some fun adventures in the mountains.
I don't have any camping gear, is that okay?
Of course! That is one of the great things about Camp Moose Trail. If you are new to camping, you don't need any expensive or fancy gear. All you have to do is show up with appropriate clothing for the weather conditions (which can change quick) and we can help you with the rest. We only ask that you bring a towel if you plan on showering or using the hot tub. Our prices include the use of anything we have on site. Please check out the Amenities section of the website for more information.
Are amenities shared?
Yes the amenities are shared with other guests, Our communal campfire and kitchen spaces are inspired by the experience of staying at an alpine hut with opportunities to socialize and have conversations with like-minded people, some of which may very well become new friends.
What kinds of measures are you taking to limit your environmental impact?
We are trying our best to reduce our environmental impact as much as we can. The wood used for construction was taken from the property as well as slash piles in the area. We have decorated the tents using wood pallets found locally, and items found a various thrift stores. The soap is biodegradeable.
