Fishing seems to run in Wayne's family, with his Great-grandfather having owned and operated a fishing lodge in the 1930's. Wayne himself has always loved fishing and spending time outdoors since he was a child. He even worked at his cousin's lodge as a teenager.
In 1979, Wayne and I spent our honeymoon on a fly-in fishing trip. It was during that week we realized owning a fishing lodge was our calling. We went on dozens of
fishing trips and checked out several lodges before finding Kipawa Lodge. Lake Kipawa was stunning, the fishing outstanding. Though the cabins and Lodge weren't perfect, we were too young and passionate to be deterred.
Kipawa Lodge was established in 1960. Since 1988 we have been working tirelessly to improve the Lodge. Significant renovations have been made to cabins, updated rental boats as well as the installation of a solar power system to provide 24-hour electricity. We are very proud to offer cottage rentals and fishing packages for sportsmen and families. More than 75% of guests return year after year.
We will never be finished upgrading and making improvements but that’s okay. We raised our daughters here and our grandkids visit every summer. We’ve made some great friends.
We owe a great big thank you to all our guests for helping to make Kipawa Lodge what it is today. We could not have done without your help.
