Past participants say...

"Cardigan is a great, easy fun place for first timers as well as more experienced "outdoors folks". The lodge is comfortable and clean, but what really makes us return is the welcoming atmosphere. It's okay not to be an expert yet. Oh, better come hungry, too. The food is great!
