Today, Island Lake Lodge announced its official opening day of their summer operations. The wait is over - on Friday June 26 the property gate will open at 8am with the following available for guests.

Summer will start with both the Bear Lodge Bistro and Tamarack Dining opening for food and beverage service. Operations will differ from the past, but they are excited to be able to offer the Island Lake experience to guests. Hours of operation will be:

The Bear Bistro:  11am- 8pm
The Tamarack Dining Room: 5pm - 9pm

Reservations are recommended for the Tamarack Dining Room.

Hiking and biking 
Everyone is itching to get out on the trails, and where better to explore than at Island Lake Lodge! Trails will open as well on the 26 and staff encourages everyone to get out and enjoy nature safely. At this time, they are not limiting access on their often-busy road and ask that everyone refrain from doing bike shuttles for the Lazy Lizard trail.  The trail was built as an “up and down” trail, please use it as such.

The last couple of months have left us all needing some spa time… Island Lake's Spa will be available on a limited basis and by appointment.

Go for a paddle. Canoes will be available starting on the 26.

At this time they are still evaluating how to best operate the accommodation lodges. Please stay posted as they work on this part of their business. 

Management at Island Lake has put in place a number of policies and procedures to keep their staff and guests safe. These are posted around the lodges and on their website. Please adhere to all social distancing and covid-19 related guidelines, signage and policies.

For additional information, reservations, menus and all covid-19 related procedures head to Island Lake's website.
