Frequently Asked Questions
I have never camped before - will this be appropriate for a beginner?
YES! This can be a great introduction to camping for those who have never camped before. We will make sure you are able to keep yourself warm in your tent, and answer any questions you might have. We can assist you with food preparation and clean up, and ensure you are comfortable in your surroundings.
I don't have any camping gear, is that okay?
Of course! That is the great thing about this. If you are new to this, you don't need any gear. All you have to do is show up and we provide the rest - linens, pillows, food preparation. We only ask that you bring a towel if you plan on showering or using the hot tub. If you forget, towels are available for purchase on site. Please check out the Amenities section of the website for more information.
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 recommended 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.
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. We have solar energy on site. In the future, we are looking to gather rain water too!
