About Thompson Lake Lodge (ceased operation 2006 under Mike Chursinoff)
Thompson Lake Lodge is a rustic (semi-modern) lodge situated
directly between two lakes in Saskatchewan’s scenic north. Access
is by charter aircraft from the town of La Ronge about 60 air miles
to the south.
This small lodge offers complete isolation, and your boat will be the only one on the lake. In essence, you will be “renting the lake” itself during your stay at Thompson Lake. There has been no past fishing pressure on any of the lakes in the vicinity, including Thompson Lake or any of the other lakes easily accessed by short hikes. These are all small lakes, so waters remain relatively calm in all weather conditions. Wildlife sightings (bear, otters, beaver, eagles) are common.
Thompson Lake (established 1982) is “camp oriented”,
catering to small groups and families. Sleeping/eating quarters
are privately situated at one end of the lodge, and up to six people
can be accommodated. Additional facilities (cabin) are located at
Allen Lake, accessed by day hike from the
main lodge, or directly by air. Allen Lake is a
small lake nearing 200 feet in depth and contains Lake Trout.
Daily rates are the same at both camps.
Your host, Mike Chursinoff, is the author of " Trapped in a Cruel Paradise", first published in 2001 by Jona Publishing. In his book, Mike details some of his experiences with isolation and life in the north.
