The variety of lodging and meeting room options at the Lake Doniphan Conference and Retreat Center are ideal for camping and retreat experiences. Whereas youth may enjoy rustic cabins or small rooms with bunk beds, seniors may find that less desirable. That is not a problem because we offer a wide selection of rooms that should meet virtually every need. Likewise, our lodges and outbuildings provide many meeting rooms, classrooms, nurseries, and most any type of gathering room you may require.

Lodging

  • Main Lodge: The Main Lodge features 33 bedrooms, each with two double or two queen beds and a private bath. These rooms are fully furnished and carpeted, with bed and bath linens supplied. The lodge also contains a "VIP Suite" with kitchenette, living room area and its own phone line. The dining room is just a short walk down the hallway from any bedroom. There is a telephone line and answering machine for event participants in the upper north hallway. The Main Lodge is equipped with wireless internet service and 9 plug-in ports.

  • Mini-Lodges: These two smaller lodges offer more intimate accommodations for 64 in eight rooms of eight. Each sleeping room contains four bunk beds, a private three-piece bath, a second private shower room, and an additional two sinks with vanity. (Bed and bath linens supplied.) The gathering room is the heart of these smaller lodges, with cedar walls, vaulted ceiling, stone fireplace, kitchenette with pay phone, and two-story windows overlooking the upper lake.

  • Cabins: The 19 rustic cabins offer a simple yet cozy environment suitable for families or small groups. Outfitted with two to six bunk beds each, the cabins are great for capturing the feeling of outdoor camping in warm weather, but with the comfort of a window air conditioner. The public restrooms and shower facilities are conveniently located nearby. Cabin guests provide their own bedding and towels.
  • RV Spots: We also have 20 spots for those who bring their lodging with them. Campers, trailers, RV's and tents welcome.
