Loess Hills Lodge Interpretive Facility

Lodge restrooms are open regular park hours of 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily but the Lodge desk & gift shop are working on reduced hours at least through the end of July. Lodge hours are currently:

Monday – Wednesday – Closed

Thursday – Saturday – 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Sunday – 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Due to staffing, we may have to close the desk if we do not have the coverage to keep it open. Additional closures will be announced with as much advance notice as possible on our website & Facebook page. We are asking park visitors to continue to be prepared to pay at the front gate with cash or check in the event the lodge is closed.

The exhibit gallery is closed to the public & there is no access past the welcome desk at this time.
