Welcome to Lost Prairie Lodge. Located on the northern end of the Midwest prairie pothole region 30 miles south of the Canadian border in Cavalier County, North Dakota. This North Dakota duck hunting lodge is located in a prime location for waterfowl migration. The land surrounding the lodge supports a variety of bird species making it the ideal place for waterfowl hunting expeditions and bird watching excursions. Field and water hunts are conducted annually as the vast variety of migrating ducks and geese travel the central flyway. Ample food sources, an abundance of water and safe roosting areas all play host to millions of waterfowl annually. During peak migration, the Sand hill Crane and the Tundra Swan (tags available by state lottery through the NDGF) also migrate through the area on their south-bound journey.

>LPL< combines premium lodging accommodations with some of the finest freelance duck hunting in the continental United States. A variety of hunting land, located in eight surrounding townships, makes up nearly 10,000 acres of land access near the Lost Prairie Lodge.
