The Lunge Lodge

The Lunge Lodge on the Upper French River

Last trip I spent $180 calling home from the pay phone, mostly because my wife won't let me go a few days let alone a week with a call.

I really don't want to spend that much this time around, but want to be able to get in touch with my wife, and kids.  Are there any suggestions for phone cards to be able to save a few bucks? Or any wifi around to be able to bring my tablet and SKYPE with the family?

open to any suggestions, thanks

And I outspent ANY advice is welcome!  ( i like to save my money for more lures )


The best way is to buy an 'international calling card' at Walmart or any drug store. Be sure it is 'international'. You'll dial an 800 number, your number, then the numbers on the card. The cards come with X minutes and you can usually add to them with a credit card. I've done it that way for years.

As far as 'skyping', you'd need to dock over at Riverview and pay them a daily fee for the passcode to their WiFi. I know Chad and Kyle use their wifi regularly. There is still no internet service at the lodge. They've got a dial up, but that would never work for Skype.

Hope this helps.
Thanks Tony.

They best way is bring your phone on the boat and check for signal towards Nippissing, like in Satchels. This has worked two years in a row. In fact, we even had full signal up in Marsh Bay. 

Our whole group is on Verizon. 

Will never use pay phone again. :)
