A destination as legendary as Deer Creek Lodge isn’t built overnight. The Deer Creek Lodge story began in 1978, when the lodge was established and started building its worldwide reputation for trophy whitetail hunting. Articles about the lodge’s amazing whitetail hunting offerings appeared in several magazines and newspapers, spreading the word to outdoor enthusiasts everywhere. A variety of nationally distributed videos and nationally broadcast television shows were also filmed on location. Later the lodge would add to its growing fame by also becoming renowned for unsurpassed wing shooting. Wing shooting accolades from Orvis in 2001 and again in 2006-2007 recognized what many of our guests had already come to appreciate about Deer Creek Lodge: the hard-flying birds, luxurious lodging, delicious cuisine, and genuine southern hospitality. Once again, magazines, television, and videos carried the news nationwide, by depicting the wing shooting opportunities at Deer Creek. All the while, dedicated Deer Creek personnel continued to add new offerings to thrill our guests. A beautiful man-made lake soon became a paradise for catch-and-release trophy bass fishing. Activities, including horseback riding and sporting clays, provided guests with even more ways to enjoy the outdoors. Our beautiful grounds and facilities made this a sought-after destination for weddings and events. Today, the same passion and determination that’s been integral to Deer Creek Lodge since 1978 is still at work adding to the amazing guest experiences.
