Spring & Summer


By late May the ice is off the lake and fishing abounds. The spawning rainbow trout in the channel provide a spectacular sight until late June. Frequent fly-bys of ospreys and bald eagles with a silver trout clutched in their talons is a sight to behold. They’ll congregate in the trees in front of the camp and if you’re lucky, you’ll see them dive down and snatch a fish out of Little Johnson Lake right before your eyes.


Fishing is at its peak in June as the fish are hungry after their long winter beneath the ice. The Johnson Lake Trail System, originally established in 2006 for horses, is also suitable for a multitude of levels of hiking and biking, and range from 3 ½ km to 22 km long. Some trails leave from the resort, others you will want to drive to and start from there. June, July and August bring hot days, perfect for a family vacation and swimming in Little Johnson Lake.

Soon after the Labour Day Weekend, we will start to see cooler temperatures and soon the leaves start to turn and the countryside becomes a showpiece of fall colours.  Fall fishing has been productive as the trout become aggressive in their feeding habits before freeze up.

For the hunter, the resort makes the perfect base camp. Johnson Lake is located in MU 3-37.October has been the most productive month in recent years for mule deer. 


Open until early November, the resort is an amazing place to kick back and relax before the busy Christmas season. Curl up in front of the fire in the lodge, or get out and experience the crisp clear air on a beautiful autumn day.
