Lost Island Lodge is located on a secluded, wooded island, on 200 private acres near Linwood Ne., overlooking the beautiful Platte River, a 1 hr drive (Approximately 60 miles) from Omaha or Lincoln. The rustic lodge and attached bunkhouse are used as a waterfowl hunting lodge during fall and winter with the facilities being perfect for summertime weekend gatherings, or week-long vacations. Swim, relax, sunbathe, canoe & kayak, fish, or wade & explore in the river and it's sandbars. Enjoy the peaceful lodge with fully equipped kitchen, satellite TV, air conditioning, wood burning stove, loft, great room, sunroom, covered deck, and spacious patio, all with captivating, panoramic views of the river.

We're confident yours will too.


Lost Island hunting club and lodge.: We have operated our family owned hunting club at Lost Island for over 30 years. We offer guided, and non-guided hunts and lodging throughout the waterfowl season. Our hunting is done on our improved wetlands from electrified, heated blinds and pits, as well as portable and permanent heated blinds from sandbars and islands on our 1.5 miles of Platte River. Ice out systems ensure a quality hunt even during cold, late season outings. Our lodge and bunkhouse were built in 1993, and 1998 respectively. Extensive wetland enhancement projects were completed in 1996, with approximately 70 acres flooded during the fall . Additionally, Late season deer hunts and spring turkey hunts are available. References, rates, and available dates provided upon request.

Additional information.: We do not have telephone or internet. Cell phone reception is good, as are wireless internet devices for your laptop.
Guided fishing trips available spring, summer, and fall. Guided mushroom hunts available in spring. Guided Airboat tours up the Platte River available with reservation. Boat ramp available. Kitchen has 2 refrigerator/freezers. Family reunions, business retreats, youth groups, and group hunts, all work well. No ATV's please. Bird watching and wildlife viewing opportunities are tremendous, including deer, turkeys, eagles, waterfowl, many songbirds, bobcats, mink, raccoons, opossum, beavers, otters and more.
