A Vacation Retreat
Cozy housekeeping cabins provide the perfect “basecamp” for families, couples or individuals to enjoy the pleasures of the outdoors without sacrificing comfort. Each cabin has all of its pots, pans, dishes and linens provided plus kitchen and bathroom facilities. All you need to bring is your food!
Our recreation building with its huge fireplace and our lounge building with its spectacular view of the area have many books and games to offer those who stay in camp. For those who love hiking and fishing, the Lakes Basin area is the perfect place to come. Numerous well-marked and maintained trails lead out from Elwell Lakes Lodge.
On Long Lake, just three-quarters of a mile from the lodge, we provide rowboats for our guests to use for fishing or just floating lazily around. Swimming in our creek-filled pool or in one of the many nearby lakes is delightful during the warm summer days.
A climb to the top of Mt. Elwell, 7,812 feet above sea level, affords a panoramic view of this wonderful lake region that is indescribable. For the fisherman, 23 lakes within a three-mile radius of the lodge, provide many a day of enjoyment fishing from the shore. Numerous well-marked trails lead out from Elwell Lakes Lodge.
