A place for the adventurous.

Post sparkS lake Fire recovery

In 2021, the Sparks Lake Fire burned through Bonaparte Provincial Park.

Thankfully, the main buildings of Skitchine Lodge were untouched. Only our auxiliary structures sustained damage, such as our water tower. It burnt down, but in doing so proceeded to dump all of its water on the fire below, thereby saving the rest of our buildings.

Years after the fire, it’s fascinating to wander the forests and witness the rebirth of this forest ecosystem.

For starters, in 2022 a bumper crop of morel mushrooms grew amongst the charred tree trunks. These mushrooms flush and cluster together the year after a fire and are eagerly anticipated by mushroom foragers.

Our lakes and the the spawning streams that feed into them are healthy and rich in nutrients from the post-fire runoff. The trout are bigger and fatter than ever.
