The Lodge Renovation

The Lodge, formerly known as the Iowa River Conservation Club, was originally built in the 1960s and was acquired by Hardin County Conservation in 2021 with the intent of renovating the building to serve as a multi-function venue for the public. The building has roots in Steamboat Rock and has been a location for community events and family gathers for generations. The venue continues to host many local organization's meetings, fundraiser, family gatherings, and wedding parties. Hardin County Conservation hopes to enhance and preserve this location, to continue the legacy for new and returning patrons for years to come!
