It all started way back in 1919 when Fred and Lillian Cameron first created Samoset Lodge out of the forest next to a rock point and a sandy beach.
Years later (1948), with much water under the bridge, Lillian (now a Batsford) and her son Wally Cameron joined forces to build a second lodge, named Lakair, located beside the original lodge and fronting on the new “Kings” Hwy.#64.
In 1992, son Kevin and wife, Leslie took over Lakair Lodge from Wally and Hazel Cameron to carry on the tradition.
Much has changed over those 90 years and much has remained the same. The lake is still very beautiful, and the fishing, although not the virgin fishing of the early ’20s remains very good.
At Lakair we have strived to maintain much of the “50s” charm. Many of our guests have been coming here for generations and the old timers have great stories to tell of fishing adventures from years gone by. Some of our guests are direct descendants of the original visitors who first met my Grandmother, Lillian Cameron (originally Lillian Lavanna Rice) way back in the 1920s
