The Wanapitei Chateau
Scroll down for booking forms for the 2023 summer season.
The Wanapitei Chateau is located where the Red Squirrel River meets Lake Temagami — an area of breathtaking beauty across the bridge from Camp Wanapitei. Historically a hunting and fishing lodge, the Chateau continues to be a favorite spot for nature enthusiasts (including hunters and anglers), families looking for a summer vacation, and parents of current Wanapitei campers. Additionally, the lodge is a fantastic launching point for a wilderness canoe trip in Temagami and a decadent way to finish a wilderness canoe trip. The Chateau is a designated heritage building.
The lodge has 9 rooms ranging from double occupancy (double bed or single beds) to dormitory-style with four beds. Many rooms have their own private balconies overlooking Lake Temagami. Linens and towels are supplied. We also offering tenting on the point, with full access to the Chateau’s amenities.
Beautiful, wide wrap-around porches and balconies provide a delightful way to experience relaxing and communing with family and friends. Flush toilets, outhouses, and basic shower facilities are available for all guests (including those who choose to camp in a tent). The main floor is equipped with large, comfortable couches and chairs, tables for board games and puzzles, and open space for gathering with friends. A grand staircase leads to the second-floor living area and bedrooms.
The Chateau chef is hired for their ability to produce beautiful meals. The compliments have been numerous over the past few years. The Chateau food is fantastic. We are able to cater to most special diets if we know about them in advance.
Reasons to Visit
The Chateau has played host to several conferences and gatherings over the years. It is best known to Wanapitei families as a play to spend a night (or several) when dropping off or picking up campers. The Chateau hosts our annual Family Camp programs each summer, allowing guests to get the best of both worlds: comfortable hospitality with the fun and rustic adventure of summer camp.
