Current Access/Weather Conditions: This cabin is a hike-in only cabin. Cars are not permitted on the Tay Havelock Trail. Please park your car and follow the hiking instructions below. (It is a 500 metre hike from the parking lot.)

Water: Running water is currently turned ON for the season. We provide 20 litres of drinkable water in jugs. Tap water is NOT drinkable.

BEARS: Be aware, there have been reports of bear sightings in the area. Our cabins are located in the wilderness and you may encounter wildlife during your trip. Please DO NOT leave food (or coolers) out, and educate yourself on how to manage a bear encounter by reviewing this BEAR WISE FACT SHEET.

TENT CATERPILLARS: Be Aware, widespread tent caterpillar outbreaks have been occurring across Ontario over the last few years. We are now seeing many caterpillars emerge on our property this season. Do no be alarmed to see many around our cabin/property. These caterpillars are harmless to humans, but do cause major damage to our tree canopy. Unfortunately, we cannot control mother nature.
