About Lake Ahquabi Lodge
Lake Ahquabi Lodge
Welcome to Lake Ahquabi Lodge, nestled within the picturesque surroundings of Lake Ahquabi State Park. The name "Ahquabi," derived from the Sauk and Fox native language, eloquently translates to "resting place," capturing the essence of this serene 770-acre park. Established in 1936, Lake Ahquabi State Park stands as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, with many of its enduring structures crafted by the skilled hands of the men from the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the challenging era of the Great Depression.
At the heart of the park lies the Lake Ahquabi Lodge, a stately stone structure that reflects the timeless craftsmanship of the CCC. This historic lodge serves as a symbol of the park's rich heritage and commitment to preserving natural beauty. Complemented by two charming shelters, North and South, Lake Ahquabi Lodge provides a tranquil retreat for visitors seeking solace amidst nature's wonders. Whether exploring the park's lush landscapes, partaking in outdoor activities, or simply relishing the architectural marvels shaped by the CCC, Lake Ahquabi Lodge invites guests to experience the perfect blend of history, tranquility, and natural splendor.
