Dear Pipestone Lake Lodge Guests, Customers and Friends,

We are so sad and sorry to inform you that our beloved Pipestone Lake Lodge was destroyed by a huge forest fire in the early morning hours of Tuesday, August 29th. We are devastated. For all of you who shared our love for Pipestone Lake you know that it was a place of peace and solitude and great beauty.

The main lodge was completely destroyed as well as the shop with all the tools and equipment needed to run the lodge.

We will be working very hard on starting up an outpost camp on Reilly Lake about 20 miles west of Reindeer Lake for the 2018 season. It is a very similar lake to Pipestone with all three main species of fish in it. An added bonus to fishing Reilly Lake is going down the river across from the lodge into one of Reindeer Lakes bays for more fishing and adventure. We hope you would consider supporting us at Reilly Lake Camp next season or in the future.

Thank you so much for all the good times, support and friendship at Pipestone Lake.
