Camp Lakota

Camp Lakota is over 120 acres of forest, prairie, and wetlands. Located just outside of Woodstock Illinois it is accessible with the Metra rail system, and convenient to the Northwest Metro Chicago and Rockford areas of Illinois.  The camp has a resident caretaker and is available for rental use throughout the year.

 

Facilities include a two floor program center with kitchen and room for training or program activities.  Adjacent to the program center is a large activity field with volley ball court, flag poles and Seaton shelter. The camp has two additional shelters, Moehling and Gould. The eagle lodge is outfitted with bunk beds and climate controlled, i.e. cooled in the summer and heated in the winter.  The shower house has female and male sections for adults and youth. The 16 wooded camp sites located throughout the camp are outfitted with a fire ring and picnic table.  Many camp sites are sufficient to accommodate a large troop.

 

For information about the camp’s shooting sports area contact the PTAC Camping Executive at (312) 421-8800 x300. 

Ranger Notes

Driving in the camp should be minimized to provide for safety of campers, and minimize disruption of the natural environment and damage to the roads. Driving in camp should be confined to the gravel roads and done only when entering or leaving camp. A speed of 5 miles per hour is recommended when traveling on camp roads. There is a large parking lot at the entrance and smaller parking areas at the shower house and sparrow camp site. The camp is small enough where it is possible to park in the large parking lot and hike in with personal gear.
