Historic Widgawa Lodge

The History of Widgawa Lodge
The historic Widgawa Lodge with its medley of cottages and wilderness cabins, was at first a gold miners` base camp. In 1911, James and Charles Bousquet discovered gold, on nearby Howry Creek. In the following two years, over one hundred other prospectors rushed in to the La Cloche Mountains, to stake their claims.

The village of West River and Camp Widgawa were established to accommodate these seekers of gold, and their families. By 1950, gold could no longer be found; West River Village was abandoned, but Widgawa became a hunting and fishing camp, and later a summer family vacation resort. And later still, Outfitters for Killarney Provincial Park; issuing permits and renting canoes to those wishing to gain access to back-country camping in Killarney`s interior, from the west, and Highway 6 Access Point.

Over the past century Widgawa has been owned and successfully operated as a lodge and resort; by the Greens, the Barretts, and the Wilsons. Widgawa`s current keepers, Cornelia and Joshua, plan to maintain past standards of friendliness, and continue to offer all the services required to accommodate, and outfit you for the perfect unforgettable vacation in the heart of unspoiled nature.
