Lost Lake Woods Club began its history in 1926. It was one of the first recreational clubs established in the state and was located on property that was previously known as the Roe Ranch.
The Lincoln Land Company was responsible for its establishment and promoted as The Working Mans Country Club. Ownership of Lost Lake Woods Club passed from Lincoln Land Company to the club in August 1934.
The gateposts for the original entrance to the club via Muskrat Trail can still be seen from Barlow Road (F-41). The entrance was later relocated to Fox Road.
Construction of the original clubhouse was begun in 1927 and by 1928 was up and running. Everything went well until 1946 when the clubhouse burned to the ground. Members rebuilt the clubhouse that stands in the current location.
The original campground and horse barns were located on Badger Lake north of the clubhouse. The horse barns were, of course, a favorite gathering place for children. Both of the facilities were later relocated when it was felt that having them so close to the lake was unsanitary (and the horse barns created quite an odor).
