  1. If you have sent a deposit, but it states your week has no openings – that is because we already have you on our schedule! No worries!

  2. We accept check, money order, or cashier check for deposits. Thanks for checking!

  3. Will cell phones work up there? Do we send the deposits to the Il. adress?

  4. There is not reliable cell service on our property. However, many guests have been able to use their cell phone while out on the water. We have a phone at the lodge that you are more than welcome to use. The deposit can be sent to our Illinois address: 1910 E. Taylor, Bloomington, IL 61701.

  5. Thank you for your fast reply.

  6. What are the rules on what we can take into Canada?
    Drinks, cigarettes,or any other items.How much on these items?

  7. You are permitted one case of beer per person OR 1.14 liters of liquor OR 1.5 liters of wine across the border duty free. You can bring 200 cigarettes, 50 cigars, AND 200 grams of tobacco across duty free. We don’t recommend bringing more than that to save the hassle of having to go into the customs office to pay tax on additional items. There is a liquor store in the same parking lot as the grocery store in Red Lake and a beer store although the items are more expensive than they are in the states.

    Also, you can bring live bait across the border as long as it is in artificial bedding or newspaper, but they can not be in dirt or soil. No live minnows or leeches are allowed across the border. No weapons are allowed either. For a full list or to inquire on other items call Canada Border Services (807) 274-3655 ext. 240 or check out their website Thanks for checking!
