Know Before You Go


Thank you for considering the Pearson Lake Adventure into your leisure planning schedule. Wilderness adventures provide the participant with a powerful reminder on how fragile our last frontier really is. Whether flying or quading into Pearson Lake, the route passes by or over the world's largest Heavy oil Extraction facilities illustrating what we are truly capable of in the quest for advancing our ability to provide energy. The responsibility of restoring the land back to its original state is a promise only our descendants will live to appreciate, but in the interim we have a responsibility as users of insuring the land that still considered wilderness remains this way. We can assist in this process by simply following the rules and guidelines set out by the Province regarding, environment protection, conservation, and fire awareness. I am requesting that before you take the trip into, Pearson that you and your crew or family spend the time to review these regulations that are available on line so that we are in compliance and do our part on retaining this wonderland.

Transportation

Float plane - Permits are required to land in the park. McMurray Aviation is our chartered airline. If utilizing your own plane we will apply for your permit.


ATV & Snowmobiles - Please visit- Alberta.ca and review Motorized recreation on public land.

-please remain on the designated trials there is little top soil covering the land and if you have had the opportunity to travel this area you will appreciate the damage that can be caused by off trail driving.

-The temptation of stopping along side the trail for a cold pop is alluring to the best of us, however arriving safe and sound at the lodge with a full crew without injury or equipment damage if far more alluring. Please refrain from consuming alcohol or smoking marijuana until the camp is reached.


Fire Season


There is a designated fire pit and we supply the fire wood. Please insure your fire is completed distinguished when the camp in unattended.


Fire ban


With the changing climate and increased wildfires the government will issue fire bands when required. Please contact Alberta Wildfire for more information, they provide a number of mediums for communications including a facebook connection.

Note: THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS WHEN A FIRE BAN IS DECLARED PUT ALL FIRES OUT


Fishing and Hunting


Please review the Alberta Guide to Sportfishing Regulations. albertaregulations.ca

Please review Alberta Guide to Alberta Hunting Regulations

Local conservation officers are familiar with Pearson Lake and are good enough to visit on occasio,n insuring we are doing our part in keeping our natural resources intact.

Wildlife - Appreciating this land is their, habitat you may have some uninvited guests. Along with squirrels the odd marten or weasel our most prominent visitor in the black bear. We have air horns in the camps and latreens in the event you have a visitor. If you are diligent and remove fish remains immediately after they're cleaned to the designated dump site, insure all your garbage is burned each day, and do not leave food out when fishing or over night you may not encourage a visit. However, the Pearson peninsula is blessed with blue berries so during this season you may have a fairly aggressive blueberry competitor.

Please visit- Alberta Bear Smart Program


First Aid and Emergency Egress - A very good time can become a very traumatic time if one of us or our crew sustains a serious injury in a remote location. We have installed a cell phone booster in the main camp in the event help is required. First aid kits are installed in both camps for minor cuts and bruises. For emergency egress, there is a helicopter landing area just north of the camp.


Please visit Ambulance and Emergency Help services

Boating Safety


Pearson Lake is a relatively small lake and only reaches depths of 30 feet. Its many sandy beaches provide the user with a resort persona. However it is a body of water and as such must be respected. A strong West wind even on a sunny day can create waves that for those who are not experienced, can be a hazard that they may not be prepared for. I would suggest the senior or most experience guest reach out to his crew to insure all aware of the hazards of boating.

The boats are equipped with the required safety equipment however its the boaters responsibility to insure there in the boat before it leaves the dock. The outboard motors are all four stroke eliminating the need to mix fuel.

There are signs posted regarding mixing alcohol/drugs and boating; this is a combination that seldom pays dividends. Please observe these rules.

Please visit -Transport Canada -Safe boating guide

Camp start up and shut down

Pearson Lake is known as a drop off camp. Guests are ultimately responsible for the cleanliness of the camp which helps to keep the costs in line. Maintaining a clean camp and area is paramount to sustaining a lease so please treat this camp if it was yours.  A posting at the landing and in the main camp is a road map to both start up and close down of the camp.


All About that Walleye

The fishing at Pearson gets better each year due to the health of the lake, and of the responsibility of those fishing. Please respect the fish so future generations can enjoy the lake.
