NOTICE

Due to our recent weather, Wendego Lodge is SNOWMOBILE IN ONLY at this time. We have had a lot of snow up on the mountain. Call us if you have any questions. Thanks !!

Under New Management

When was the last time:
You smelled clean, fresh mountain air, the 4600′ variety?
You had a truly undisturbed, completely relaxed sleep?
Your toughest decision was to decide whether to go fishing or lie in the sun and relax?
If the answer to any of these questions is “too long ago”, Wendego Lodge is for you.

Wendego Lodge offers an affordable family fishing vacation with excellent fishing for both wild Kamloops rainbow trout and Kokanee. We are the only people on the lake and our cabins have everything you need for light housekeeping and they sleep up to six people.

Our lake is not called “Tranquille” for nothing. We have an atmosphere unspoiled by countless summer cabins and undisturbed by power boats, an atmosphere as opposed to urban hustle and bustle as nature will allow. You know the best things in life really are free. Just watching the birds, chipmunks, squirrels or maybe even a deer or moose is thrilling. We have miles of gorgeous conifers, gentle refreshing breezes, blue sky, and just plain beautiful peace and quiet.
Our home lake, Tranquille, offers fine Kamloops Trout and Kokanee fishing with flies and light tackle. For the dyed in wool fisherman, Saul Lake, Truda Lake, and Pass Lake (Trophy Lake), provides some truly fine sport. The high elevation keeps the water cool and the fishing steady even in the warm summer months.
Of course the fun doesn’t end when you have caught the fish. When was the last time you had a feast of pan fried trout or enjoyed delicious smoked Kokanee?

Come and join us! We have worked hard to retain the natural beauty that is the British Columbia interior wilderness.

About Us

Hello everyone we have been working on finding the time to take a photo and do an introduction. As days seem to fly by up here…. This is a photo from January 2019 back in Red Deer, Alberta.

In the photo (from left to right) I would like to introduce Treyton, Jessica, Justin (myself) and Mikaela.

Jessica and I decided to make a life change a couple years ago and…. here we are!! There is no denying this it is a physical demanding lifestyle that we have chosen💪🏼 and the property came with a “few” broken things 🤔! But we would not have it another way!

Now that we have more time to watch and listen, we are absolutely blown away every day by the growth of our children.❤❤

We are excited to start this adventure and hopeful for what the future brings. We are really enjoying all the people we are getting the opportunity to meet and look forward to all the people we get to meet in the future!

There is so much to say, but being off grid, there is little online time… and we don’t mind it🤗. Come stop by have a coffee or stay a night or two we will share the adventure of moving from suburbia to off grid!

Winter at Wendego

Anyone who claims winter isn’t fun and exciting just hasn’t been to Wendego.  The abundance of snow provides excellent snowmobiling, with beautiful scenery and challenging trails as well as easier trails for the beginners.  After the lake freezes over, around mid-November, you can have terrific fun ice fishing for Kokanee and Kamloops trout.  You can also go tobogganing, cross country skiing, or maybe just help the young folk build the largest snowman ever!

Our insulated cabins and wood stoves provide warmth and comfort on a winters evening.  Even though we have lots of snow from late November thru April, the roads are kept open year round.  However four wheel drive is necessary.  Winter is always a great time and lots of fun at Wendego Lodge.

The Resort

We look forward to welcoming you to Wendego Lodge and hope you enjoy your stay.   The lodge is the gathering place for the guests.  It has a large sitting room, a small store and a picture window overlooking the lake.   Come and listen to the fishing adventures and share some of your own.   We are the only development on the lake with 10 housekeeping cabins, making our lodge a very private and peaceful experience.

Fishing

Our home lake, Tranquille, offers fine Kamloops Trout and Kokanee fishing with flies and light tackle. For the dyed in wool fisherman, Saul Lake, Truda Lake, and Pass Lake (Trophy Lake), provides some truly fine sport. The high elevation keeps the water cool and the fishing steady even in the warm summer months.

Of course the fun doesn’t end when you have caught the fish. When was the last time you had a feast of pan fried trout or enjoyed delicious smoked Kokanee?
When the lake freezes over in the winter ice fishing is the favorite pastime up here!
