What to Bring:

At Carpenter Lake Cabins, the cabins are fully equipped for housekeeping. Items such as bedding and a range of tools for cooking and meal preparation are provided. Each cabin has a refrigerator and freezer for food storage and a barbecue. Guests have free use of boats and outboard motors with fuel can be rented. We provide oars, life jackets and mandatory boat kits with each boat.

The lodge has a small store with a limited selection of food, candy and personal items. The store has ice and fish worms. Minnows need to be purchased from a bait store or trapped locally.

Remember to buy fishing or hunting licenses before you come to camp. These are available at Service Ontario centers in major towns and some local stores. Two convenient outlets are McClelland's Hardware store in Desbarats and the Highway Variety Store at 883 Trunk Road in Sault Ste Marie (on the right as you drive east from the Soo).
