Our four-season lodge sleeps up to 26 people between two bunk rooms, and features a large sunny gathering space with a central fireplace, and a deck with a beautiful view of the Amnicon River valley. Located right in the heart of base camp, this space was designed to facilitate community building with a ‘biggest sleepover ever’ kind of vibe. 

– Adizokan Village –

Our seasonal retreat facility is the perfect blend of comfort and camping. Located a 10-15 minute walk away from base camp, you’ll get to sleep in real beds while listening to the waves on Lake Superior. With easy access to our large sandy beach, a picnic pavilion, and multiple campfire options, Adizokan is great for youth events & family retreats. 

Three Ways to Eat!

– Full Meal Service –

Depending on availability, we may be able to provide hot meals to your group while you’re here! During summer months we’ll eat in the big pavilion at basecamp. During colder months we’ll gather in the Manoomin building for meals. Contact us for prices & availability. 

– Food Provisions –

We’ll do the menu planning and food shopping, and have everything set and ready for you when you arrive! We’ll include instructions, and you can heat up the food when it’s convenient for you.

– Do It Yourself –

Make it exactly what you want! We provide some basic kitchen supplies, and can offer suggestions about what works well and how to keep it easy to feed a crowd. 

LOTS of ways to have fun!

- Hiking -

We have a couple miles of hiking trails right here on our site that take you to some pretty cool places, including several sweeping views of Lake Superior, our sandy beach on The Lake, the forest, a cedar grove, a broad meadow, and an eagle’s nest.

Within easy driving distance of Amnicon are a number of fantastic trails as well, including: Amnicon Falls State Park, Pattison State Park, Jay Cooke State Park, Gooseberry Falls State Park, Superior Hiking Trail, North Country Scenic Trail, Brule River State Forest, and Frog Bay Tribal National Park.

- Swimming -

We have an enormous sandy beach on the South Shore of Lake Superior that is a fantatsic place to spend an afternoon swimming, playing in the waves, building sand castles & driftwood forts, and just enjoying the beauty of nature. If The Lake is too cold for swimming, the Amnicon River is usually much warmer! Our dock along the river makes for a great swimming hole too. Some people have even enjoyed swimming down the river to the beach!

- Canoeing -

We have canoes and stand up paddle boards that you’re welcome to enjoy while you’re here. We’ll even provide the paddles & PFDs (life jackets) too. There’s just a brief safety orientation we have to give to each group before you head out, but then after that you’re free to play! The Amnicon River is great for exploring, and can fill up a whole morning or afternoon on your schedule if you’d like.

- Campfire -

There’s nothing quite like sitting around a campfire to help spark deep discussion about life. We have a number of options for gathering around a fire, including inside the Alleluia Lodge, under the Gathering Pavilion, and at Adizokan Village. We also allow campfires anywhere along the beach as long as they are less than 3-feet tall. Watching the sunset on the beach next to a fire is a great way to end the day.

- Duluth Tourism -

Duluth, MN is such a cool place to visit! And while you may *feel* like you’re in the middle of nowhere at Amnicon… we’re actually only a 30-ish minute drive from downtown Duluth.

- Service Projects in the Twin Ports -

We’ve partnered with Service Learning Camps, LLC to help groups who want to give back and do service projects in the Twin Ports area. Amnicon can provide the food and housing, and SLC coordinates the service projects your group will do. SLC groups in the past have done everything from working at food shelters to cleaning up parks to harvesting honey berries and more!
