Summer Update

By following Alberta's health guidelines, we have determined that William Watson Lodge can safely reopen for a limited time this summer.

The lodge will be open for guests from July 1 to July 26. Visitors must make reservations prior to arriving at the lodge. The comfort station, comfort camping cabin and day lodge (with the exception of reservations) will not open and we will not loan out equipment at this time.

Staff will follow Chief Medical Officer of Health orders to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This includes enhanced disinfection of high touch surfaces, enhanced cleaning of cabins, limiting check in/check out to one family member and no access to amenities such as the lounge, kitchen and dining areas.

The lodge will close early this year for renovations. The new lodge will enhance the overall visitor experience and safety, and bring the facility up to today’s international accessibility standards. The lodge will be closed during the two-year construction period. The Government of Alberta is investing $6 million into the project.
