Pet Policy

No pets allowed. We ask that you please find another place for your pets to stay when you visit Smoothstone Lake Lodge.

Check-in and check-out times

Check-in time is 3 p.m. and the check-out time is 11 a.m. Check-in and check-out times allow us to make sure the camp is ready for you, and to get it ready for the next group coming in. We appreciate your assistance in this.


We have free WiFi at the camp available in the main lodge and surrounding area. It’s a satellite internet connection that is great for checking email, browsing the web and checking in on Facebook. It’s not suitable for downloading large files or streaming movies.

If you have any special technical requirements for your stay, please get in touch with us to see what can be arranged.

Cell phone coverage

Cellular coverage currently stops shortly after Big River.

Border & customs

For any concerns with crossing the border in regards to a past record (e.g. DUI charges) contact Canada Border Crossing Services at (204) 488-6350.


For bringing firearms into Canada you can download the non-resident firearm declaration form; fill out form 5589.

The permit fee is $25 per person. Follow the instructions carefully when filling the form out and make sure not to sign the form until you are in front of a customs officer.

If you have everything filled out and $25 CAD cash in hand, the process goes a lot faster.

Coming from the U.S. with your firearm, it is advised to fill out U.S. Customs and Border Protection form 4457. You will need to take the firearm that you are travelling with to your local customs office and get them to sign this form. This is so that upon returning to the U.S., they know the gun you took with you is the same gun coming home. There is no charge for this form.
