Camp Cookhouse Restaurant & General Store
Don't let the rustic look fool you. Underneath the kitschy look of Camp Cookhouse, located next to the visitor centre in Elkwater, lies a taste extravaganza to surprise anyone. Old-world techniques are infused with modern-day know-how, which translates into creative riffs on classic favourites. Brisket and latke eggs benny, anyone? Making everything fresh from bread to bacon and striving to use as many locally sourced products as possible, owners Alex and Becky (who appeared on Top Chef Canada) surprise diners at every turn. Meat (and butter!) is smoked in-house, fries are hand-cut and hearty meals are served up to satisfy everyone from carnivores to vegetarians. Be sure to wander the aisles of the attached General Store. In addition to camp necessities and sundries, you’ll find gems like house-made flavoured marshmallows, salsas and preserves.
