Welcome to Santa Maria Elks Lodge 1538 – home to enthusiastic Elks with incredible fraternal spirit. We have popular activities for every taste: from Cook Your Own Fridays, to seasonal celebrations, Adopt-A-Highway, BINGO, and local events honoring families, veterans, students, law enforcement, and our community at large. We go camping, host camping, offer banquet facilities, have weekly family meals, watch sporting events together, host theatre productions, play golf, go bowling, and are intrinsically entwined with Elks Rec Rodeo.

Our Lodge was recently featured on the Travel Channel – Andrew Zimmer
n’s Bizarre Foods – Cruising the Pacific Coast Highway – during the show our own Ike Simas, BBQ guru (also known as “head Old Fart”) included Santa Maria Style BBQ at our Lodge BBQ Pit!

We hope you find what you’re looking for on our site – let us know if we can help you: 805.922.1538 or lodge@elks1538.org – full contact information can be found here.
