A Place To Visit


   Atlantic, Iowa is located 79 miles west of Des Moines, IA and 61 miles east of Omaha, NE. on Hwy. 71, 6 miles south of I-80.  We are surrounded by rich farm ground with primary crops being corn, soybeans, beef and pork.


   With a population of 7300 our town is always busy.  We have many businesses and industries to keep our workforce employed.  Shopping is excellent with the many hometown stores and larger chain stores.


   Hunting and fishing are abundant in the area and many hunters and fishermen returning year after year.  Deer, pheasants and turkeys can be seen several times a day by just taking a short drive in the country.  The local lakes and farm ponds are full of bass, bluegill, crappie, catfish and many others.


   Visiting Elks and their families are always welcome.  We are located at 501 Poplar St. in Atlantic, IA.  Stop by after 4 pm Monday thru Saturday, as we're always happy to meet visiting Elks.  Check the Driving Directions Tab of this web site for accurate directions to our Lodge.
