Rustic Summer Retreats at Adizokan Village

Accommodations are rustic but comfortable, providing more of a wilderness feel than the lodge.

Details + Amenities

After a lovely ten-minute walk through a beautiful forest, you’ll find yourself at this enchanting seasonal village. With real beds in sturdy canvas tents built up on wooden platforms, you get the unique opportunity to fall asleep listening the waves on Lake Superior, while being comfortably protected from the bugs, wind, and rain. During the day you can spend your time relaxing and playing on our half-mile-long sandy beach on the biggest lake in the world, paddling our canoes and paddle boards on the serene Amnicon River, or hiking our rustic trails. Each evening, gather around the campfire to watch the sun set over the lake and dig deep into the kind of conversations that only seem to happen around a fire in the woods. With the perfect blend of camping & comfort, staying at Adizokan Village is a great way for your group to bond , to have fun, and to encounter nature. You’ll be glad you came!

How do meals work?

You are welcome to cook for yourselves out at Adizokan Village if you’d like!

We also provide many gallons of water in jugs, and Amnicon staff will refill water jugs daily. If you’re cooking for yourselves, we recommend bringing paper plates & bowls which you can then burn after each meal to reduce the amount of dishes you have to wash and also the amount of waste that goes into the landfill. 

If you’d like us to provide meals for you, we are happy to do that as well. Please make arrangements with Amnicon for meal service when you book your retreat.

“On a retreat, away from the cares and responsibilities of daily life,

people finally have the space and time for

reflection, prayer, fun, worship, relationship building, and great experiences.

Amnicon is easy to get to, only 30 minutes from Duluth,

but you feel like you are miles away from the demands of life.”

-Pastor Joel
