Where we are located
          North up the gravel road off of I 94 exit 205 east of Steele, ND you will find our house and lodge. A little over seven miles up the road you will see our place on the west side of the hill.                                                                                                        
What is nearby    
Steele is the closest town, seven miles to the west of the I 94 exit. There you can find groceries, a bar, a drug store, a bank, post office, Caribou Coffee, Pizza Hut and 24 hour gas/convenience store with fast food. Head on up the road to the north of the lodge for 15 miles and you will find Robinson, a small community with a bar, bank, diner and post office    East on the interstate from the exit is Dawson, another small prairie town similar to Robinson.    Click here for a map that will help you find us.

You can literally walk out the door of the lodge and hunt.   Get in your truck and head any direction and you can find great looking duck, goose and upland bird habitat.   The perfect mix of native prairie, pasture, CRP and croplands make this a Mecca for ducks and geese from April to November.   The opportunities are abundant, especially with the liberal trespass laws of North Dakota.   And don't let the No Hunting signs deter you.  Many landowners are happy to share their place with you if you ask politely.   
Thousands of acres of PLOTS (private land open to public access) can be found within a few miles of the lodge.  Maps can be download from the ND Game and Fish site and we will have map books on hand at the lodge.

Walleye? Perch? Big northerns? Kidder County has lakes full of them. With little fishing pressure and so many lakes to fish, you can find jumbo perch through the ice, limits of walleye from the boat and 30"+ northerns any time of the year. Access is good with concrete ramps and docks on most lake and driving access for winter fishing.

        Regulations, maps, licenses and more info are available on the ND Game and Fish website.
