Douglas Lodge in Itasca State Park, Minnesota, USA, is named after Wallace Barton Douglas.


Historic Douglas Lodge was constructed between 1903-1905. Originally called Itasca Park Lodge, it now bears the name of then Attorney General Wallace B. Douglas, who selected the building site overlooking the east arm of Lake Itasca.

The lodge was completed for a cost of $11,646.35. In addition to the historic lodge, there are a variety of other facilities ranging from the Dormitory (1932) and the Clubhouse (1911), to the log cabins (1911) and the Fireplace Rooms (1937) to the Forest Inn (1938-1940).

Many of the facilities in the Douglas Lodge complex are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
