The Pelican Campground & Lounge will be reopening this summer thanks to Contractors Corner’s Geoff Gregoire. The campground/lounge had been closed for twelve years prior to Gregoire purchasing the property in May of 2017. The Pelican Campground & Lounge is located in Ninette, Manitoba on the North Shore of Pelican Lake. The site features 28 full service campsites as well as an area for tents. They also have a fully furnished rental cabin on the property that sleeps 6. The cabin has two bedrooms, a hide a bed, 1 full bath, and a kitchen with utensils.
Last summer Geoff and his team spent a considerable amount of time cleaning up and preparing the campground for campers and their families. Fast forward a year and Geoff and his team are excited to open the licensed restaurant & lounge to the public. The restaurant & lounge also received a massive, modern face lift. It seats 99 and features an old school jukebox and a shuffleboard table. With the help of his girlfriend Coralee Pushka they have put together a food program with a wide array of menu items including pizza, burgers, wraps, appetizers, and sandwiches. The bar menu includes both domestic & imported beer, a wide selection of wines, shooters, & mixed cocktails. Opening date for the restaurant/lounge is Wednesday, May 2 at 4:00 pm. They will also be offering a weekly Sunday buffet starting Mothers Day weekend.
Additional future development on the property includes bathrooms, showers, and a coin-operated laundry. They will also be installing a 80’ boat dock with 4 wings for customers who want to take a boat ride for dinner.
