L Kee Ta - Hero

Camp L-Kee-Ta

7501 200th Avenue, Danville, IA 52623

The 150-acre Camp L-Kee-Ta is nestled between the Skunk River and the small community of Danville, Iowa, about 12 miles from Burlington. It is a pristine, wooded outdoor paradise. It is full of lush vegetation, large oak and hickory trees, a meadow and a creek that winds lazily through the property.

L-Kee-Ta offers tree houses, cabins, huts and a four-season troop house featuring a great room with fireplace, two sleeping areas, bathrooms, showers and a kitchen.

The camp began in 1945, thanks to a generous gift from the local Elks Club. A little girl named Karen Wilson suggested the name because she said it meant “Lady Elk” in a Native American language.
