DeSoto's Lodge was built by the Civilian Conservation Corp during the 1930s. At the time it was used as a group lodge and a dance hall. During the late 70s additions were added around the main part of the Lodge and a motel constructed next to it. Inside the main lobby you can still see the front center stone with the word 'Lodge' carved into it. The original part of the structure was turned into the Mountain Inn Restaurant, which is still in operation today.
Mountain Chalets, Log Cabins, Motel Rooms, & Rustic Cabins can be rented at the Lodge. For more info & to make a reservation, please call the Lodge at 1-800-568-8840 or 1-800-ALAPARK.
