318 Tahigwa Drive, Dorchester, IA 52140
Camp Tahigwa is located 20 miles north and east of Decorah, nestled in the wooded hills of Allamakee County in the northeast corner of Iowa. Bear Creek, a beautiful clear-water stream, flows lazily through this 315-acre property. The site was purchased by the Girl Scouts in 1965 and has been developed since.
Troop 3 of Cedar Falls won the camp naming contest. The name was derived from a Native American word meaning “At Peace.” They were rewarded with enough food to feed the whole troop for six meals to be enjoyed during a weekend of troop camping on the new site.
Facility rental is available in spring, fall and winter at all camp properties. For more information or to reserve a facility, please contact Camp Ranger Mahlon Sibert or call 563-546-7755.
