Built in 1921, the Shovel Pass Lodge is Jasper National Park's oldest backcountry lodge. Originally operated as one of Fred Brewster's Rocky Mountain Camps, the facilities included a chalet and several tent frames for guest accommodation. This camp was one of the stops on a round trip horse excursion from Jasper to Maligne Lake.

Rebuilt in 1991 by the current owners, the facilities now include 7 guest cabins and a main log chalet with dining room and kitchen.  


Home cooked meals are served in the main lodge. Fresh salads, ample meat and vegetable dishes along with delicious desserts ensure that even the biggest appetite will be satisfied. Please note that the facility is not licensed however, our packers will be happy to freight in any personal alcoholic beverages if  they choose to use our freight service option.

After dinner, guests can explore the surrounding country or relax in the lounge area next to the wood stove, enjoy the view from the front deck or retire to their private cabin.



The lodge can accommodate up to 18 guests. Each cabin is equipped with wash stands with hot water delivered daily, propane heating and lighting, single or queen size log frame beds. No need to bring a sleeping bag, comforters and fresh linen are provided, however guests should bring their own wash towel.
