Pat Babcock bought Cree River Lodge in 2008. You could say he was just following the family plan after growing up spending much time at Deception Lake Lodge, owned by his Grandparents. A place of his own was something he had the opportunity to own at the age of 32.
Prior to purchasing Cree River Lodge, Pat was involved in cattle farming, oil field trucking and sod farming. But owning a fishing lodge of his own was something he wanted to do and then set about to make it his own. The first 5 cabins, plus lodge, were already built when he bought the Lodge.
Pat believes in a business built around a family of employees and a couple hundred friends as customers. He describes his number one job as "Keep everybody helping everybody".

We have had some amazing adventures here at Cree River Lodge. Fortunately a number of them have been captured on video or written up in some of the leading fishing publications in North America. Please see them shown below.
