Restored CCC Era Lodge To Open August 20th On Spirit Lake
Date posted - August 8, 2012
The lodge, originally built during the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, was renovated over the last two years. A free-standing, open air shelter with a modern restroom adjoining the lodge was added and next fall, a parking lot will go in. The total project cost is $1.25 million.
The project was supported locally with a fundraising campaign that netted more than $500,000, of which more than $200,000 will go into an endowment to fund the Mini-Wakan lodge and the Gull Point lodge for future repairs. The rest of the funds went to the Mini-Wakan restoration.
The lodge will rent for $150 per day on the weekend, and $75 per day on weekdays. It features a galley kitchen for catering and has a maximum occupancy of 125.
The lodge shares the area with a two lane boat ramp. Parking is available in designated areas and along the road. The area where the new parking lot will be installed is currently going through an archeological recovery of Native American artifacts. Once completed, the parking lot will be installed that can accommodate the lodge use and boat ramp traffic.
To reserve the lodge you can call the park office at 712-337-3211.
