Toad River

Toad River Lodge

Inside Toad River Lodge

The very first time I stopped at Toad River Lodge, I was filling the ’66 Chevy with gas, while watching a single engine airplane taxi down the Alaska Highway and stop in front of the Lodge.  The pilot and a passenger climbed out of the plane, and proceeded to go inside to have breakfast.  At that point, I knew I was heading in the right direction.

The Lodge’s quirk is the hats.  Stapled to the ceiling and any available wall space, are 4580 baseball caps of all shapes, sizes and colors.  Toad River lies in the beautiful Toad River Valley of Northern British Columbia.  Population 60.  Wildlife population: Slightly more moose, deer, sheep, bison, bear, mountain goats and caribou.
