In the wilderness without roughing it
Dormitory style lodging. great food.
A trip to Long Lake Conservation Center is like an adventure into a remote, secluded forest lake teaming with wildlife, but without the rustic, roughing-it lodging. In fact, the rooms are pretty nice and the food is great.
Long Lake has two primary lodging facilities: the North Star Lodge, and Marcum House. Both feature dormitory style rooms with either two or four bunkbeds. Each room has a private shower and toilets, and sinks with vanities. These rooms are designed to accommodate school Nature School field trip groups, but are comfortable for adult and non-school groups as well. Don't take our word for it...check it out for yourself. See the pictures below.
Chef Joel Hoppe and the culinary team at Long Lake prepare fresh restaurant-caliber meals, served either buffet or family style. This is not typical cafeteria school food! You're sure to enjoy Joel's made-from-scratch favorites including cinnamon rolls, oven-roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, homemade chili, hand-tossed pizza and more. For special occasions, Chef Joel flexes his cuisine muscles and creates incredible homestyle meals included roasted chicken, meatloaf, ribs, and pork tenderloin...
