Our South Gataga wilderness mountain cabin is located in the heart of the Muskwa Kechika Wilderness Area in the Dune Za Keyih Provincial Park, some 80 air miles southeast of Muncho Lake. Only accessible by our float planes, the pristine South Gataga Valley is surrounded by the snow-capped mountain peaks of the northern Rocky Mountains. The South Gataga River (Gataga means white water in the native Kaska/Dene language) originates from a chain of four mountain lakes. Our cabin is located on the largest of the four, at five miles long. A natural mineral lick on the second lake attracts moose and caribou and can easily be reached by boat or canoe through a short connecting stream. Beavers, otters, wolves and a myriad of birds make the South Gataga Valley their home.
Fishing: In the shallow bays you will find northern pike and the occasional grayling. Fish deeper waters to find nice sized lake trout. Several streams enter the lake and these spots are excellent fly fishing for arctic grayling.
Wildlife: Moose and caribou are frequently seen around the cabin and at the mineral lick. Otters, eagles and waterfowl are common on this migration route.
