For those who do not like a time schedule and want to do their own cooking etc., our all inclusive Light Housekeeping Plan provides just what you’re looking for. *We have one cottage for 2/3, one cottage for 4, two cottages for 6, and one cottage for a maximum of 9 people. No mixing, each party has their own cottage.

At Separation Lake you have available a much wider variety of fish and also much better fishing than most all outpost lakes. The reason being is the lack of fishing pressure. Most outpost lakes, even those with only one or two cabins get a lot of fishing pressure and normally provide you with no more than two species of fish. So why pay the same or probably more, and get less when you have the opportunity to choose Separation. If it is the isolation that you want, then this we provide, as we are the only camp on the lake and have over 90 miles of waterway plus an untold number of islands and bays to explore.
