Wilderness Suites, Pods and Vacation Packages
What is the difference between a Wilderness Suite and a Wilderness Pod?
A wilderness suite is basically a hotel room inside of a tent! It comes fully equipped with electricity, a full bathroom, mini-fridge, fans, and electric blankets. A wilderness pod is a bit more like camping; it is simply a small cabin with a bed, and no electricity or bathrooms (shared bathrooms are available on-site).
What do I need to bring when I stay in a wilderness suite or pod?
We supply all towels and linens when you stay in a wilderness suite. We also supply toilet paper, hand soap, shampoo/conditioner. You should bring a blow dryer, tooth paste, tooth brush, and any other toiletry items that you need. Can I bring a pet to stay in a wilderness suite?
Yes you can, there is an additional $20 charge for the additional cleaning that is needed. Please inform us when reserving your suite so that we can put you in a pet-friendly suite upon arrival.
Can I set up a tent and camp on-site?
No, we do not allow camping on-site. We are a 3 minute drive from the Turkey Point Provincial Park where you can camp!
What does the breakfast include?
Breakfast typically includes eggs, bacon or sausage, potatoes & veggies, French toast or pancakes, fresh locally baked bread, fresh locally grown fruit, yogurt, granola, coffee, tea, and juice.
What is the zipline & canopy tour?
The zipline & canopy tour consists of 8 ziplines, 2 suspension bridges and ends with a 40 foot rappel. When you book this tour, you go through the entire course one time, with two trained zipline guides.
What is a rappel?
A rappel is a controlled descent down from a higher point. Our rappel involves a belay system that one of the guides controls from the bottom of the rappel so that there is always a back-up break.
What should I bring with me?
For the zipline tour, you don’t need to bring anything other than a sense of adventure!
Optional items include: a camera with a strap that you can attach to your gear and a metal water bottle with a carabiner that you can attach to your gear.
What should I wear?
Closed-toed shoes are a must for the zipline tour. In addition, we recommend that you dress for the weather as we do the zipline tour in the rain. Shorts and a tank top are fine in the summer. We do not recommend wearing short-shorts or a bathing suit on the zipline tour.

What if the weather is bad?
We do the zipline tour if it is raining. If there is thunder, lightning or high winds, we will reschedule your tour to when is convenient for you. If you are not able to come back another time, we will offer you a refund (the amount of the refund is dependent upon how far you are in the zipline tour when the tour is cancelled).
