We are OPEN! The Road Has Been Plowed!!

Please Note: We are only plowing the road as needed, if you are looking to come up to the lodge, it is recommended to contact us ahead of time to check the condition of the road.

Their is active logging on the Criss Creek Road travel with caution. Road channel is RR-12, call Red Lake Road.

We are currently accessible via the Tranquille/Criss Creek Road. Please Click Here to be taken to our directions page.

Roads are slick and care should be taken when travelling. Travel at your own risk.

We are seeing snow starting to pile up, if coming this direction please travel prepared. SUV’s & trucks are highly recommended (4×4). At this time of the year, we HIGHLY advise against travelling up here with smaller type vehicles / vehicles with only 2 wheel drive. We are into the winter season and have had snow on more than one occasion; with that comes ice, and more snow. It is highly recommended to take it slow on the way up & down. Tire chains, are HIGHLY recommended as the weather changes quick up here. Please travel prepared.

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 natural wild reproducing Kamloops rainbow trout and Kokanee Salmon. 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 both natural wild reproducing Kamloops rainbow trout and Kokanee Salmon 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.

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