Oak Lodge is a historic recreational complex in Chatfield Hollow State Park in Killingworth, Connecticut. that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. The main building is a large Rustic-style structure built in 1937 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The lodge was built on the west side of Schreeder Pond, an artificial pond also built by the CCC. It was part of the development of recreational activities within Cockaponset State Forest. The CCC benefited from the construction excellence of its masons, wrought-iron smiths, and woodworkers, and some of their best work is shown in Oak Lodge. The complex also includes two wood-frame bath houses. The property was covered in a 1985 Connecticut statewide study of 15 depression-era CCC, FERA, CWA, and WPA structures.
