Wye LodgeLodge and Pavilion

Wye Island hosts the DNR Conference Lodge (Duck House). The lodge and grounds are available to rent for your meetings, retreats, company picnics, family reunions, weddings and receptions. 

The conference lodge is located on Granary Creek just off the Wye East River. For recreation, we provide horseshoes and a large field for other recreational activities. Guests are welcome to hike or bring bicycles to utilize the many miles of trails and shoreline. 

The lodge can accomodate 25 to 30 people per day for an indoor meeting or event.

​There are overnight accommodations for 12 people in a dormitory setting within the lodge and adjoining bunkhouse. 

Outdoors, groups of 50 to 200 people can be accommodated as well, using the lodge and nearby pavilion. A self-service kitchen and an outdoor grill are available to users.
