The Rockwell Lake Lodge


The Rockwell Lake Lodge, a 16,000-square-foot retreat and conference facility, is part of Hillsdale College’s George H. Gordon Biological Station. The lodge consists of ten private, custom-furnished guest suites housing up to 40 occupants, dining and conference rooms, and a large deck area. The lodge is open to the public and may be reserved for events such as family outings and reunions, business meetings, conferences, and camps.  It also allows visitors to experience a variety of educational programs offered at the station.

The George H. Gordon Biological Station, which includes 685 acres of old fields, forests, marshes, a trout stream, and Rockwell Lake, is the largest private-college station in Michigan. Since its establishment in 1999, many Hillsdale College students have utilized this natural outdoor setting to conduct scientific research and to learn responsible environmental stewardship. With the addition of The Rockwell Lake Lodge, learners of all ages will be able to avail themselves of the College’s northern Michigan field research laboratory.
