Directions: Due to some construction at CFB Gagetown, an alternate route to the lodge should be used. Here is the easiest route, if one enters the base via the main gate. At the first intersection, turn left onto Champlain. Follow Champlain to its end. Turn right onto Ganong. The road to the lodge will be on your left, at the sign for Camp Argonaut. Those entering the north gate will be unaffected.
