ARCTAS Lodging - Cold Lake

ESPO has set-up a room block of on-base housing at the Cold Lake air base. All single rooms have TV and cable, DVD player, double bed, small refrigerator, towels, and soap (note: shampoo is not provided). Each room shares a bathroom with an adjoining room, but has an individual sink with mirror. There is a telephone with local access (long distance access with calling card only). A coin laundry and furnished common lounge (with microwave) is on each floor. Internet will be available inside the building by the time we arrive.

There is a dining hall across the street that is available for our use. Breakfast is $4.50, and all-you-can-eat lunch or dinner is $8.50. Current meal hours are 6-9 am (breakfast), 11 am - 2 pm (lunch), and 4-6:30 pm (dinner). We have requested they keep the hall open until 8:00 pm for dinner. Box lunches will not be available from the dining hall but there is a small store you will have access to.

We will also have access to on-base facilities, including the recreation center (for a one-time $11 CAD fee), base clubs, golf course, medical/dental clinic, post office, ATM, and base exchange. There is an open enlisted club next to our building (Bldg. 42) that has bar snacks, pool tables, etc., for our use.

Someone will meet the bus and assist with check in and provide room keys and badges. If your arrival changes, please contact Sue Tolley and John (780-820-0666).
