Miss Happy

Happy, the on-site manager, will make sure your stay here will be an unforgettable experience! We can show you pictures of all the great reasons to stay at Choke Canyon Lodge, but one thing you have to experience for yourself is the charisma, charm and personality this young lady brings to the lodge!

After spending just a few minutes with her, it was hard for us to head out and go fishing! From late night anectdotes at the lodge to fishing stories; when something interesting happens in Three Rivers you can bet Happy has a story to tell. Next time you stay at Choke Canyon Lodge be sure to pull up a chair and spend some quality time with Happy…you can thank us for the advice when you see us there!
