Biography/HistoryTurtle River State Park was established in 1934, and was originally called Grand Forks State Park. Men from the Civilian Conservation Corps were stationed nearby and built bridges, roads, parking areas, footpaths, and many buildings, including the Woodland Lodge, which was a multipurpose building to be used as a dining hall, concessions building, and caretaker's residence. Spring flooding in 2000 damaged the lodge, but it was disassembled and rebuilt on higher ground. The outline of the lodge's fireplace and foundation is still visible at the building's original site.
