Faces Behind the Counter
Owners- Morris & Susan McLachlan
The McLachlan family has been connected to Prince Albert National Park (PANP) since 1946 handling what was called at the time “Shack Tents”. The family business also harvested lake ice to resell in the summer time for refrigeration and has been a part of the heritage of PANP for over 50 years.
In 1999 Morris acquired the operation of the marina and continues the family tradition by having the support of daughters, brothers, nieces, nephews and cousins. In 2015 Morris was joined in the day to day operations by his wife Sue after retiring from a 30yr career with Parks Canada.
We are starting the 19th year of operation and still feel privileged to have a business in this beautiful park.
We currently have two long term staff members Natalie Matheson found most often at the Main and Heart Lakes Marina. Ron Kuiper can be found operating all aspects of the Narrows Marina. In addition we hire approximately 13 individuals for a total of 15 staff members yearly.
