Located 90 air miles southwest of Muncho Lake, British Columbia, our Frog River outpost is nestled in a mountain valley, high in the Cassiar Mountains right at the continental divide between the Pacific and Arctic watersheds. In less than 2 hours, one can wander from the arctic watershed at Frog River to the uppermost Pitman Lake in the Pacific drainage basin. This gives our guests access to two different drainage basins with their own unique fishing experiences. To the north and the south of the cabin, a high mountain valley gives way to spectacular mountain ridges and peaks. The elevation of the Frog River outpost and its lakes is at 3300 ft. There are 7500 ft high ridges to the north or south that can be reached on daily wilderness hiking trips from your log cabin.
Back at the outpost, a sandy beach in front of the cabin invites you to savour the long summer days in the sun. Animals like moose, caribou and mountain goats are frequently observed. Bald eagles nest in the valley and wait for careless grayling to surface. In addition, very few people know that there is actually a hotspring on the Frog River - canoe to the first rapids, a short portage, canoe 3 miles down the second lake, leave the canoe on the beach and hike for 1 hour downstream is the natural hotspring.
Away from any signs of civilization this undisturbed ecosystem is this nature lover's paradise, Frog River.
