A wonderful place to relax , enjoy the scenery, fishing and the accommodations! Al and Colleen are wonderful hosts. They make sure you are comfortable, well equipped and happy. Can’t wait for our return visit! You will Not be disappointed.
Woodlands Resort at Puntzi Lake is a fantastic place to go camping . Or, if you prefer, there are rental cabins with views of the beautiful lake. The sites are spacious, well-maintained, and with or without full hook-ups, whatever you prefer. The scenery is awesome. Great view of the lake. We love sitting in our fishing boat watching the pelicans fly overhead. And ,of course, catching Kokanee is the highlight of our fishing excursions! Can’t say enough good things about the resort owners. They go above and beyond to make our stay pleasurable and unforgettable. Not to forget the on-site bakery and restaurant! Daily fresh bread, huge cinnamon buns, banana loaves, and so much more. The home-made pizzas and hamburgers are DELICIOUS. Al and Colleen are awesome hosts. When you have stayed at Woodland Resort once you will most certainly be returning next season. We book for the following year before we leave! This is a great camping experience you won’t want to miss out on.
The resort is a great place to relax and unwind. It offers so many outdoor activities. You can fish, hike, quad, whatever your heart desires. Your hosts go out of their way to make sure you are well looked after. You will always leave Woodlands Fishing Resort with a smile on your face and a want to return.
Pelican Perspectives had the pleasure of working on a project with these wonderful folks, Al and Colleen have a very laid back and quiet resort where you can enjoy cabin life or if so inclined snag a spot amongst the trees with epic views of Puntzi Lake right outside your doorstep,
We encourage one and all to support your local business' and if your coming up to visit we'd be more then happy to set you up with these fine folks, not too mention Colleen is a genius in the kitchen!
Lovely hosts, beautiful, well-maintained campground. Amazing drinking water. The food from the bakery is delicious. The area is gorgeous . Great lake to kayak in. We hear that the fishing is great too.
What a beautiful resort! Loved the bakery, smoothies and cinnamon buns - the perfect camping experience for me! Fabulous scenery, a screened in dinning room to relax enjoy! Oh, and there is fishing, boating and large sites for our trailer! We will come back for sure!
quiet...peaceful , relaxing, lots of white pelicans and good fishing and the owners are very nice and you have to try the cinnamon buns...they are great. oh and bring down riggers for the fishing and if you are not fishing the quading is excellent.
So happy we made a stop to The Puntzi Lake Bakery and Cafe. The owner was so kind and helpful and the fact that everything is freshly homemade gave me comforts of being home and cozy. The cafe set up is simple which suits the space as there's a lovely view of Puntzi Lake ahead. Service was quick and the owner made sure we had everything we needed. Would recommend stopping in for some freshly baked bread and treats. She also mentioned you can email to make an order ahead of time. I highly recommend this place and supporting this local business. Given the opportunity I would definitely like to stay on the grounds as well, the owners are putting in efforts to rebuild and I can imagine how much it'll add to the experience of being out in this area.
