Clam Lake Lodge – Upper Clam Lake
In 1926 Lumber Baron L.L. Barth built the Clam Lake Lodge on idyllic lakeshore on Upper Clam Lake. Mr. Barth built the Lodge as his family’s summer home and as a private resort to entertain friends, business and political associates. The Clam Lake Lodge contained amenities in 1926 that were only attainable if you were a tycoon, like L.L. Barth. Fast forward 86 years and the Clam Lake Lodge has returned to its glory. Truly fit for a lumber baron, the Lodge contains amenities not seen in many North Woods vacation homes. Come to the Clam Lake Lodge and vacation like a modern day lumber baron!
