The Dogwood Lodge offers the finest in accommodations for your leisure or business desires.
Two open decks provide space to relax and absorb the magnificent surroundings.
The Dogwood Lodge will be opening September 2015. We are currently undergoing extensive renovations and upgrades and will post photos when complete. Located in southeast Louisiana, we are a lodge offering a blend of first class accommodations, memorable cuisine of southern cooking and true hospitality that makes our guests feel like VIPs while remembering the reason you’re here is for our exceptional fishing and hunting. We can customize and manage all aspects of a successful outdoor adventure for individuals, family or corporate groups. The Dogwood is a historical vessel that was originally built for the US Coast Guard as buoy tender on the upper MS. River. It was later purchased by a cruise company and converted into a multiday vessel for river cruises.
The Dogwood Lodge is located past the end of the world marina also known as the Breton Sound Marina in Hopedale, Louisiana in the Biloxi Marsh. Hopedale is located an easy 45 minute drive southeast of New Orleans, and is on the edge of the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet. This location offers easy access to the great inshore fishing for redfish, speckled trout and many other species as well as exceptional duck hunting. This area also offers exceptional fly fishing opportunities for trophy redfish due to the clarity of the water and endless wild marshes.
The Lodge features a lounge area known as the Mississippi Room on the second deck with comfortable seating and wide screen TV to reminisce about the day’s adventures. We offer a complimentary bar as well as a outdoor seating to enjoy your morning coffee or evening libation and cigar. This room can also serve as a conference room for business meetings or seminars as needed.
The Lodge offers 6 private rooms with 2 twin beds per room and each room has a private bath. The rooms are named after the rivers she has traversed throughout her past: Red, White, Arkansas, Tennessee, Ouachita and Kanawha.
The dining room, appropriately named the Ohio Room, seats twelve for meals and can easily convert into a meeting room for corporate retreats and training sessions.

I have fished the Biloxi Marsh / Venice area of Louisiana for almost 30 years, but since discovering RedFish Dynasty several years ago, we have fished exclusively. We have mainly fished with Cody, Jason and Travis, But all of their guides are absolutely first class. They are very professional in arranging trips, and always check in a couple weeks before to update me on current conditions and required equipment etc. They have extensive knowledge and experience of the whole area, and will always choose the best options for when and where to fish depending on the conditions. They are a delight to fish with, and coupled with their knowledge of flies and fish locations, you can always be assured the best possible day fishing. I have no hesitation in recommending Redfish Dynasty unreservedly. Sincerely John
