Covid-19 Update

On Monday June 15 we moved on to phase 2 of our gradual re-opening process. As of now we are able to accept mixed groups. What does this mean? This means we can accept groups of up to 10 persons as long as they come from no more than 3 different households. 

At this point the Canada-USA border remains closed at least until end of August 2020. All cancelled reservations and deposits are being deferred to 2021. Please contact us to confirm your dates for 2021.

The Kipawa Bait and Tackle shop will remain closed for the remainder of the 2020 season. Fishing licences, bait and tackle can be purchased at the Pronature shop located at 1625 Chemin de Kipawa, Temiscamingue, Quebec, 819-627-9432.

Things are still pretty quiet around Kipawa Lodge. With only a handful of guests we are making the most of the Covid situation and continuing with

improvements.Gotta get to work!

Stay safe! 

Here is what we are doing before you arrive! 

  • All cabins will sit empty for a minimum of 24 hours between guests, therefore we must ask everyone to depart on Friday. We know this is inconvenient but very necessary to allow us to commit to this strict cleaning protocol.

  • Cabins will receive a thorough cleaning. This means all surfaces including doors, door handles, windows, window sills, shelves, tables, chairs, sinks, bathroom fixtures counter tops, appliances, floors, garbage and recycling bins will be cleaned and disinfected.

  • Dishes, cutlery, pots and pans will be kept to a minimum and cleaned and disinfected in the lodge dishwasher.

  • The fish house door has been removed. We ask that no more than 1 party use it at any given time. Disinfectant spray will be available as well as hand sanitizer. Please spray nozzle and cleaning surface with disinfectant before and after each use.

  • Rental boats will be cleaned and disinfected between rentals
