What to Bring to Ogopogo Resort

Your cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, including all utensils, glassware, toaster, coffee maker, individual four burners, stainless steel BBQ, and fireplace. When you come to Ogopogo, all your bedding, including pillows, blankets and quilts, bath towels and tea towels, are provided. Dish Soap and Hand Soap are also provided in each cottage.

Packing List

You simply need to show up with:

  • Swimming/beach towels (spring, summer, fall)
  • Food & drinks
  • Paper towels, napkins, spices, oil, condiments, coffee/tea, cooking spray, fish crisp, tin foil, saran wrap, etc.
    • Salt & pepper are provided.
  • Personal Bathroom toiletries: shampoo, soap, body wash, toothpaste, hair dryer, kleenex, etc.
  • Bug Spray & Sun Tan Lotion (spring, summer)
  • Fishing gear and fishing license (if interested in fishing)
  • Charcoal if you wish to use the communal charcoal barbeque (spring, summer, fall) however, each cottage is equipped with a 4 burner propane BBQ year round
  • Flashlights and a lantern
  • CD player/docking station
  • Rubber boots (spring), winter outdoor gear
  • We also highly recommend bringing an outdoor blanket that can be used by the fire pit or at night when sitting on the dock under the stars
  • In Winter, remember that we get quite a bit of snow. Dress warm, bring boots and extra gloves and hats. Snow tires are highly recommended. The weather here is dramatically different than the city.

Drinkable Water in Every Cottage

Our drinking water is from a deep well and is commercially treated with a double filter, two UV lights and chlorination system and is very safe to drink. It is tested by an independent lab on a monthly basis to ensure your safety and it tastes great!

No need for those nasty water bottles!

Please Bring Beverages In Cans Instead of Bottles

We also ask that if choosing to drink beer or any beverages on the property, that you purchase cans versus bottles when the option is available for the safety of our feet, children etc.

Relaxation time You can't control the weather so it was a cool weekend. We have enjoyed this resort before and are never disappointed. It is small and quiet. There are a lot of outdoor toys for activities of all ages. The cottages are small, but cozy. I am grateful not to have to drag linens with me but I prefer soft pillows rather than the hard pillows supplied. The coffee maker was not properly cleaned, but other than that all was great. If you decide to go out for breakfast the Heather Lodge is close by, reasonable and absolutely amazing!

Relaxing, soul-nurturing immersion in beauty and nature surrounding us Loved the cottage, the view of the lake, the countryside, the friendliness and helpfulness of Katherine and Todd. An added bonus was meeting wonderful people who happened to be enjoying their stay as well.

Just like home Katherine & Todd were very hospitable and generous with helping us plan our stay in the area. Todd met us at the car and transported our luggage to the cabin via snowmobile & toboggans. My daughter and I went snowshoeing on the lake, made a nighttime fire and enjoyed so many other activities in the area. The cottage was warm and clean and was just perfect for 2 people getting away for a winter holiday. I'd love to stay at Ogopogo again, we were very sad to leave!

A great winter getaway We were there for three nights in a 2 bedroom cottage. The location is handy to several activities and restaurants. The cabin was immaculate and the kitchen very well equipped. The owners were very pleasant and helpful. Covid protocols were well followed We will definitely go back.

Loraine and Graham Wise Accommodations were super clean, bright cheery rooms, bedrooms were warm, very well equipped kitchen. Skating rink well groomed, and nicely lit for night skaters. Ice huts adequate for ice fishermen. Owners Todd and Katherine very accommodating and friendly. We would highly recommend Ocopogo to others. Our group thoroughly enjoyed the weekend.

Hidden Gem We spent 3 nights in a 3 bedroom cottage in January. The resort is immaculate and the owners go above and beyond to look after their guests. The cottage was spotless and well equipped. The kids were occupied from dawn to dusk skating on the rink, whipping down the toboggan hill and catching trout and walleye. Hands down the best resort we’ve ever stayed at, a real hidden gem! Thank you to Todd and Katherine for starting a new tradition for our family, we will be back!

Winter stay at Ogopogo We were impressed at how well the kitchen was equipped. The cabin was very clean. The Staff was always super friendly and helpful. Close to Sir Sam Skiing. We enjoyed tobogganing and the outdoor fire pit.

A Fantastic Place at the Best Price The setting was lovely, the cottages were very clean and well maintained, and the owners are great people. The easy access to the lake and boats was easily the best part, but it was also nice being close to the many towns and trails we wanted to visit. This is both the most affordable and the nicest place we have lodged and would definitely go again.
