The Zois Lodge at Kokra Saddle (Slovene: Cojzova koča na Kokrskem sedlu; 1,793 meters or 5,883 feet) is a mountain hostel that stands on Kokra Saddle (Kokrsko sedlo), part of the Kamnik–Savinja Alps. It is named after the brothers Karl Zois (1756–1799), and Sigmund Zois (1747–1819).

The first lodge was built from wood in 1897 by the Austrian hiking club. After World War I it had to be rebuilt.

In 1966 it was expanded and connected via a ropeway conveyor to Konec in the Kamnik Bistrica Valley. The lodge operates from the start of June through the middle of October.
