Welcome to Norway Park, a beautiful recreational area located just an hour North of Seattle, WA and proudly associated with the Sons of Norway, Leif Erikson Lodge 2-001. Nestled on the edge of Lake McMurray in Skagit County, Norway Park is the perfect spot for a weekend getaway, a summer vacation or a permanent recreational spot for your family cabin.

Throughout the year, Norway Park hosts a variety of recreational events, such as the Fishermen’s Breakfast on the opening day of fishing, Midsommer/St. Hans Fest in June, a Lodge picnic, and traditional Norwegian Julebord at Christmastime. Join us for a fun-filled day or stay for the weekend. We can’t wait to welcome you to Norway Park!

Whether you’re looking to take a dip in the lake, soak up the sun on the beach, or rent the pavilion for a special event, Norway Park has it all.

The beach area features a shallow children’s area, swim/fishing pier, diving board, and swim float. The Upper Park offers 165 lots with approximately 120 cabins, perfect for full-time or part-time living.

To purchase  a lot lease at Norway Park, you must be a member in good standing of Leif Erikson Lodge 2-001. The annual budget for Norway Park, including general operations and ongoing improvements, is underwritten by annual assessments to each lot stockholder.

A Recreational Community

rich in tradition and history

In 1963, the Leif Erikson Lodge 2-001 purchased a 91-acre farm from the Fifield family and turned it into the perfect site for a recreation area. With the help of dedicated Lodge members, Norway Park has grown into the stunning destination it is today. From the lakefront beach and camping areas to the upper park’s cabins and green spaces, there’s something for everyone at Norway Park.

Private Community at Lake McMurray

At the lakefront, beach facilities and camping areas are open to Stockholders, Lodge members, and their guests. No reservations are taken for camping; it is on a first-come basis. A pavilion was built by the lake and is used for Norway Park activities – it can be rented by members.  Other recreational amenities include a shallow children’s area, swim/fishing pier, diving board, swim float, barbecues, picnic tables, boat launch, play area with swings, and an open grass field.
