Hawk Woods Lodge
The two-story log cabin Lodge at the E. Dale Fisk Hawk Woods Nature Center is available to rent and enjoy year-round. This unique facility, located in what seems like the middle of the woods up-north, is an ideal place for off-site business meetings, birthday parties, and family get-togethers all year!  The Lodge will be closed for replacement beginning December 7, 2018, and is expected to reopen in winter 2020.

Now is the time to plan your camping trip at Hawk Woods!  Enjoy six beautiful log cabins with overnight accommodations for 40 guests. Nothing can beat a peaceful walk in the woods or a time resting by the pond on an evening sunset. Campfires late into the star lit night bring life long memories. Call today for availability.
