Mondeaux Dam Lodge

Mondeaux Dam LodgeThe Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is starting a multi-year renovation project at the Mondeaux Dam Lodge this year. Due to the nature of the renovations the facility will be closed until further notice. 

The Mondeaux Dam Lodge facilities are located on the Medford-Park Falls Ranger District, approximately 20 miles northwest of Medford, Wisconsin. This historic facility was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and includes a restaurant building, a caretaker’s residence and garage.

Renovations to the exterior will include addressing the aging foundation, roof and siding. Internally, the electric and water services will be updated as well as the addition of accessibility features to doorways, restrooms and showers. 

Eastwood, Spearhead Point, Westpoint and Picnic Point campgrounds as well as the Lakeview Day Use Area and Mondeaux Dam Beach, Mondeaux parking lot and access roads will remain open as normal throughout the completion of this project.

The Forest will be sharing project information including status updates and the completion timeline once available on this webpage. If you have more specific questions regarding the facility and what’s happening next please contact Tim Vetter (715) 748-4875 ext. 34.
