The very first installation of the pod™ occurred this week July 8, 2013 at Chippawa Cottage & Camping Beach Front Resort on Kamaniskeg Lake. This new “glamping” experience will add more rental capacity at the resort and respond to several requests for a covered camping option.Algonquin Pod Company owner Craig Kelley was proud to exclaim, “Chippawa Cottage Resort was the perfect summer vacation location to showcase the pod to the camping world. With recent investments in the resort, our units fit in perfectly with the next generation of camping experiences. Chippawa owners, the Dunn family have been very supportive of our company from the beginning and we look forward to years of pod camping together.”
Custom manufactured in Ontario, with nearly 100 percent Ontario wood products from nearby sustainable forests, the pod™ provides a host of camping benefits; a tent-like structure that’s already set up when you arrive on site, the avoidance of nuisance rain and weather changes, privacy (lockable doors), an insulated structure that allows for fringe season camping, no need to collapse a tent and dry it out after the vacation is over. For the campsite owner(s), it offers the benefits of utilizing marginal areas of a site that are either too rough or too steep for tents, extension of the booking season, no need for permanent footings or foundation, and no more need to repair grounds due to tent damage.
Chippawa Cottage Resort is renowned for being a family place, with one of Ontario’s longest safe sandy beaches. Situated beautifully on Kamaniskeg Lake and adjacent to the Madawaska River, Chippawa boasts over 225 acres of unspoiled wilderness. Owner Donald Dunn proudly states, “We’ve always been extremely happy to provide one of the best summer vacation experiences in Ontario. Serviced by a main dining hall and lodge, our facility has a fantastic mixture of cottages, luxury house rentals, RV sites and rough tenting areas. The inclusion of the pod was a natural progression in our evolution of accommodation offerings.”
