In the winter of 2005, Colin, Brenda and James Smith moved from Bedfordshire in the UK directly to Oxtongue Lake and purchased Parkway Resort & Trading Post they started a new life in Canada away from the busy life they knew in the UK.
Since purchasing the Resort and Trading Post many changes have taken place including a new winterized 3 bedroom lodge built in the fall of 2006 and upgrades like new canoes, new Gym in the Rec Hall and changes to the store including rearranging store layout, more and more stock added, something for everyone be it a child or a adult.
Also another change to take place is the addition of 2 totem poles which use to stand outside the now burned down Timber Trail Trading Post just up the road from here.
The totem poles were made around 1948 and now stand outside our store.

We rented the "Lodge" for a weekend in early april. I am an amateur astronomer and choose this location mainly for the dark skies. I was not dissapointed - I stayed up most of the nights imaging galaxies. Great skies.
The lodge itself was 3 bedroom and clean, spacious and comfortable. It had a gas fire that was great after coming in from a cold night. My wife is not really into astronomy …
