Baker Lake is a small community in Nunavut, Canada. It is close to Rankin Inlet, Chesterfield Inlet, and Whale Cove. Fuel is available here (JET A for sure) and they publish a METAR and TAF for this airport. I have used this airport extensively in the past and the CARS (Community Aerodrome Radio Station) were extremely helpful calling for Cabs, the Fueler and the company that loaded my plane. I am not sure if there is more than one hotel in town but I stayed at the Igloo Inn which is a short cab ride into the community. Close by is the Northern Store, Hospital and High School to gain access to Internet.

There is rising terrain just to the North West of the airport so be careful at night or in poor visibility. Considering it's location it was pretty well suited with services that should take care of most peoples needs if they are just passing through.
