Frequently Asked Questions
I don’t have any camping gear, is that okay?
Yes! One of the great things about staying at Camp Moose Trail is you don’t need any camping gear. All you need is appropriate clothing, a towel and your food. We’ll take care of the rest. Your stay is inclusive of all our amenities.
Are the camp amenities shared (communal)?
Yes! Our amenities are shared with other guests. Our communal spaces are inspired by the alpine hut culture with opportunities to socialize and have conversations with like-minded people, some of whom could become new friends.
Are the tents heated?
All of our accommodation tents are heated by wood stoves. We recommend you have basic knowledge of how to start a campfire before arriving at camp.
Is the camp eco-friendly? What’s the environmental impact?
We do our best to reduce our environmental impact where ever we can. The wood used for camp construction was taken from the property as well as slash piles in the area. We decorated the tents using local wood pallets and items upcycled from thrift stores. Our toilet, soap and shampoo also biodegradeable.
Can kids come too?
Camp Moose Trail is appropriate for kids aged 6+. The tent’s wood stove and most of our camp amenities are heated by fire with no gates around it. The tents are also canvas, so loud noises can travel between the tents at night.
Are you pet friendly?
Yes! We offer two pet-friendly tents (Yoho and Fay) for friendly, well-behaved dogs. We allow one dog per tent, with a maximum of two dogs at the camp at any given time (in addition to our golden retriever who often makes guest appearances at camp).
Dogs must be under control at all times and friendly with other furry creatures, kiddos, and humans. Dogs who are not under control (excessive barking, guests complaining about your dog, etc.) will be asked to leave with no refund.
Our pet fee is $35/dog and must be selected at the time of booking.
What are the physical requirements for guests of the camp?
Once parked, you’ll 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 are all accessed via stairs.
Accessing Camp Moose Trail could be challenging for people who are uncomfortable walking on uneven terrain and may be difficult for guests with mobility impairments.
We recommend seasonal 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.
Don’t EVER leave any feed in your near your tent. All food must be stored away in the bear bins on site.
It’s wise to also carry bear spray with you, especially if you plan on heading out for some fun adventures in the mountains.
