Camp Narrows Lodge offers you the opportunity to experience a unique outdoor fishing and hunting adventure at a boat-in resort, located in beautiful northwestern Ontario. Enjoy our unbeatable combination of first-rate accommodations and excellent smallmouth bass, walleye, crappie, and northern pike fishing. The lodge is strategically situated on Northwest Bay, right in the middle of the north arm, which is world famous for its unbeatable smallmouth bass fishing. Our catch-and-release policy on these bronzebacks will ensure that Rainy Lake’s North Arm will continue to have a world-class bass fishery. On Rainy Lake you will find yourself surrounded by acres and acres of unspoiled wilderness. Camp Narrows is more than just a sport fisherman’s paradise. Our lodge offers fall black bear and duck hunting, as well as whitetail deer hunts. If you are looking for the ideal spot for a family vacation, our camp is the place for you. Many fisherman return year after year to relax and enjoy a landscape virtually untouched by modern man, while comfortable at home in one of our deluxe modern cabins. To ensure that we meet your holiday needs, we offer everything from basic housekeeping plans to fully catered American Plan or corporate packages.

The Challenges

In April 2016, we were contacted by Camp Narrows Lodge, in Ontario Canada, to re-design its main website, to be released on the web during summer 2016. While new website hasn’t gone live yet, its new design is finished and prepared for transfer.

Having worked with Camp Narrows Lodge on Rainy Lake Ontario, and its owner Tom Pearson these last few years, we modeled this new website’s design off of previous work we’ve done with their sister website, www.ontariohunting.caWe created a new website with similar layout and design scheme, graphics, and format.

With the knowledge that Camp Narrows original website was due for a re-design, and that they’d be transferring the domain address to a different provider (release for summer 2016), we wanted to complete the new design to make this transition seamless. With this new CMS system, Camp Narrows Lodge will be able to maintain and update the website themselves, and have full control of its website hosting, e-mails, domain address, and the website pages.

Project included WordPress CMS software installation and development, followed by layout design and construction, and custom graphics implementation. Project took nearly 3 weeks to complete in April 2016, encompassing lodging and hospitality pages, Rainy Lake and Ontario fishing and hunting informational pages, Canada outdoor resources information, image galleries, blog formatted pages, and news and articles. All custom design was built with Camp Narrows Lodge provided page contents, imagery and media.
