Thinking about staying there in September. (Black flies??) If we stay a few nights at the one place, are there good day hikes that we can go on each day? OR, is there a lodge-to-lodge or hut option that we should consider?

Hi again. We've booked a 5 night stay and can't wait to get there. How is the mobile phone reception? Any wifi available? I'm prepared for none however a few work items came up last minute and I'm trying to figure out how to handle them. Any feedback would be helpful.

We have AT&T and had zero coverage in the entire area, not just at the lodge. The wifi in the main building is not great but enough to get some basic info or check email. It was heaven!
