The Lodge is nestled in the forest approximately 42 kilometres south of Chetwynd and within Dunne-Za and Cree traditional territory.

The Lodge currently houses 150 women and men and occupancy is expected to grow to a peak of approximately 700 in the fall of 2020 when pipeline installation will be in full swing along the first few hundred kilometres of the route.
