I just returned from Camp Lochalsh. I wanted a trip for my 13 year old son and I in Canada that was rustic but had some amenities. We booked a trip to Camp Lochalsh which is on the mainland south of Loch Island. For those that don’t want to read the whole review, we found exactly what we were looking for.
Camp Lochalsh is the old “main lodge” of the Lochalsh resort. Now the main lodge is Loch Island. We were able to drive right up to Camp Lochalsh with my pickup. I wouldn’t try it with a car. The road to Camp Lochalsh is easy until Dubreuilville and then it gets progressively rougher, but the trip has great views.
The cabin the my son and I stayed in was much larger than needed but it was comfortable and contained a kitchen and bathroom with running water. My son and I took everything in to the cabin that we needed for the week as we stayed on the housekeeping plan. There are no meals provided at Camp Lochalsh. Only at Loch Island. We took in enough food for 3 or 4 meals for the week. That was not a problem because we caught plenty of fish. We caught walleye, northern pike and whitefish.
Camp Lochalsh is under renovation and it will be excellent when the renovations are complete. During the renovations, the stay was still excellent and I commend Amy and Andy for working to restore the Camp.
All-in-all, it was exactly what I was looking for, a remote fishing camp that has amenities of home including electricity, running water, flush toilets and showers. We didn’t get to see any moose but we did see bear, eagles, beavers and much additional wildlife.
No cell service is available but Amy and Andy do provide wifi.
