I'd recommend shopping around other places and using this one as a last resort. The prices they've quoted me at this place are much higher than what I ended up paying at nearby competitors or through ebay purchases.

In my opinion East is the best lodge to get into. To my knowledge there are no real outdoor activities outside camp. Haven't seen any trails leading anywhere. Getting to and from your room can take a while as the site is extremely large. Google an overhead image of the Wapasu camp to get a bit of perspective. Food is decent in lunch room but could definitely use some change-up in the bag room. Breakfast doesnt really rotate much aside from the waffles/french toast/pancakes they rotate; gets pretty boring IMO but you can order fresh cooked eggs in any style you desire which is a plus. There is a Tim Hortons on camp but lines are always epic. They have convenient stores which carry essentials you'd find at a small corner store or pharmaceutical as well as some bodybuilding products. Everything is pretty marked up however so try to bring everything you need. Accomodations are dorm style with a few closets but no hangers. You get a baseboard heater as well as central air system. There is a private sink. There is one florescent light in the middle of the room as well as a lamp on the 2' x 2' work desk. The room has a phone but its mostly limited to the camps phone system. Towels are replenished daily. Toilet and shower is shared so if you dont mind that it's pretty good. Televisions are fairly new and have USB, HDMI inputs as well S-video if you have any external media boxes. Washing and drying is free and the machine work quite well. You supply your own detergent. Internet is available and quite fast but is wired(you can get shared wifi in the reception area but it sucks). To get wifi, you need to bring your own router. Staff are generally pretty friendly. I have heard that they earn a six figure salary so they are pretty good on the customer service front. Never had any problems with theft(I leave out my iPad and iPhone) or anything in my room after 6 months. If you've ever had a private dorm in a hostel its basically the same sort of accommodation. Not exactly a classy hotel but by no means a prison institution like people make it out to be. They have a PS3(though they dont carry many games and sometimes not even controllers), poker rooms, ping pong rooms, basketball courts, hockey fields, movie rooms, yoga rooms, and a couple workout gyms with weight machines and cardio equipment. I would suggest bringing a laptop if you are proficient with a computer. It's made my experience a lot better.

A terrible and morally bankrupt developer. Plows over iconic community buildings such as The Waldorf to construct condos that aren't anything spectacular. This company contributes nothing to improving community lifestyle. Steer away from their development projects lest you wish to lead a lifestyle deprived of local culture and community. Want more info on their community engagement record? just Google "Solterra" and "Waldorf".
