Designed by, and with construction overseen by, Hereditary Chief John Thunder, this pavilion is a log-frame lodge that has been a feature of the park since 1925. The logs used in its construction were all cut from the property. An exhibit inside the pavilion main hall explores the site’s history. Tours by The Friends of Chippewa Park.
