Toad River Lodge was started from the life-long dreams of two boyhood best friends, Darrel and Matthew. Growing up on neighboring family farms in Edson Alberta, the boys dreamt that one day they would live and play in the north.
After high school they traveled all over western Canada while working in an Alberta oil patch. After leaving the oil business, they began working in a coal mine near Hinton, Alberta. While Matthew continued on at the coal mine, Darrel left and began his own logging company. On their days off they spent their time fishing, hunting, trapping, ATV riding and exploring the Canadian outdoors.
In 1998 they took their families on vacation, traveling along the Alaska Highway. Not only were they on vacation, but they were in search of a new place to call home. In the spring of ’99 Matthew and Darrel became the new owners of the Toad River Lodge.
