About Our Facility

Mokanna Lodge 329
Mokanna Lodge is a freestanding building on 3.5 acres of land. Handicap accessible ramp from the front parking lot. The entire building is smoke-free and composed of two main rooms separated by a central hall, offices and restrooms. The two main rooms consist of a 1,500 square foot dining hall with attached kitchen and a 3,000 square foot lodge room.

Dining Hall

Mokanna Lodge Dining Room
The dining hall can seat as many as 100 people using eight, 8-top round tables combined with eight, 8-top rectangular tables at the raised head table area. All tables and chairs can be moved for easy configuration for presentations or dances. A modest overhead speaker system is in place to accommodate background music or microphone support for speakers.

Kitchen

Mokanna Lodge Kitchen
The kitchen is attached to the dining room with a walk-up serving window stretching approximately 20 feet. Various items such as coffee urns, chafing dishes and serving ware are available, as well as a 6-burner gas range top, flat griddle with two gas ovens, for an additional fee of $50.00. The heating elements for the chafing dishes are not provided. A commercial grade ice machine provides enough ice for most any event.

Meeting/Lodge Room

Mokanna Lodge Meeting Room
The 52 foot by 56 foot lodge room seats approximately 80 in fixed-position chairs arranged on the North and South sides of the room. This can be augmented with additional chairs, expanding the seating capacity to approximately 200. The room features an overhead speaker system and lighted altar, as well as a raised speaker/presentation area. There are double entrance doors on the North and South side of the West end of the room allowing for a variety of entrance/exit scenarios for ceremonies. The entire room is carpeted, and no food or beverages are allowed. This room can be used for presentations and religious ceremonies. The meeting room is serviced by its own separate air conditioning and heating system.
