Frequently Asked Questions
WHY IS FUEL NOT INCLUDED LIKE SOME OTHER PLACES?

First and foremost, we have found the fairest way and less costly for you is to only pay for the fuel you use.
We have had this concept since we have been at South Shore Lodge.
Some lodges, at a higher initial cost include “some” fuel, however human nature dictates that they estimate up in their favor, and certainly are not going to come out behind when charging.
We experimented in the past with the “all inclusive” option, and found most of our guests paying for fuel they didn’t use, which is not the way we want to run our operation.

Also a big factor unique to South Shore Lodge is the location we have to Eagle’s prime fishing, and minimal fuel usage because of the short traveling to good fishing areas.

For some idea when planning your trip and estimating your fuel cost, you would be very close at figuring about $8.00/person/day. Some that do a lot of running around will use abit more, but many use less.

HOW DO WE COORDINATE A TIME TO GET PICKED UP AT THE LANDING?

When you arrive at our pick up point/parking area, there is a radio at the dock.
You can call over to the lodge, and we will be over in just a few minutes to load you and your gear, and boat to the lodge.

HOW FAR IS THE BOAT RIDE TO THE LODGE?

It is only about a mile and a half to the lodge from the landing.

WHAT TIME CAN WE ARRIVE?

We say arrival time is 1:00 so we can assure your cabin and boat is ready after guests leave that morning.
If you come earlier, and the cabin is not ready, we can set your gear outside, get you a boat to go out fishing, and put your gear in the cabin when it is clean. Please, no arrival before 10:00 as we are getting guests out for fishing and departing for home.
