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.
