Traveling to Northern Saskatchewan
We are located 135 miles (217 km) northeast of LaRonge on Highway 102, an all-weather road. The first 20 miles (32 km) are paved, while the rest is gravel-surfaced. It is not a superhighway, but with a little caution it is easily passable with a sedan or station wagon. In fact, most of our guest choose to travel that way. A 4-wheel drive vehicle is not necessary for this road.
Gas is available at Mile 81 (130 km) (McLennan Lake) and Mile 136 (218 km) (Reindeer Lake Service, Southend). Information on Flying to Our Location in Saskatchewan
