The Sprung structure included an 8-inch fiberglass blanket insulation package, numerous windows options as well as an attractive exterior graphics package. The new day lodge was called One Elk Lodge. With a seating capacity of over 400 people, this structure is joined by one connecting corridor to a fully equipped kitchen trailer and a second connecting corridor to a washroom trailer. Large sun top windows help patrons enjoy the phenomenal scenery surrounding the facility.
