The first time I stayed at Clearwater Lodge was in 2009 and I have been coming back every summer since. I have come solo, part of a big camping party, and as a family and every experience is phenomenal. The staff are always friendly and very resourceful. The crew's knowledge of the area is very impressive. Whether it is the best spots for fishing, campsites and scenic areas, the staff always have the best information! The facilities are always clean and inviting. Whether you are a morning person or a night owl, there is always time to sit and sip coffee on the porch drinking in the view of the Palasades in the distance. No matter what is in store for my Northern adventures next summer, I can rest assured that Clearwater Historic Lodge has me covered!
