Our lodge is the pride and joy of LRDC. We have excellent duck hunting, but we also have a one of a kind lodge to accommodate our guests. we will put our lodge up against any in the country and once you get here you will understand why we say that. You will spend a lot of time at the lodge and we wanted to make sure you had a place that you wouldn't forget. We have made sure that you will have everything a hunter needs when you are ready to relax after a morning of killing ducks. The lodge is a fully furnished 3,500 sq. ft. with 4 bedrooms that sleeps a total of 16, 3 bath rooms, a great room with a 65" flat screen TV and pool table, kitchen, mud room, and laundry room with washer and dryer for your use. As soon as you step in the front door you know you are at a real hunting camp, and made the right decision by hunting with us at LRDC.
The building was originally built in 1942 in Marianna as a barracks for soldiers traveling by train in WW2. The building had been used for several things over the years, the latest was a feed & supply store owned by Mahan & Burkett. It was relocated to the farm in 2012. We were able to salvage the exterior tin, original hardwood floors, and the rafters in the great room. Larry Higgins has been salvaging old barns, houses, and buildings since the 1980's with hopes of one day building a cabin on the family farm. All of the wood and tin on the walls and ceilings came from places he has salvaged here in Lee County. The great room is decorated with animals our family has killed here in Eastern Arkansas and from other hunting trips we have taken around the country. The big windows in the great room offer an amazing view of the Larkin Lake. From the back deck you will occasionally see ducks flying the lake, otters & beavers playing in the water, and deer crossing the fields surrounding the lodge.
