Camp Wokanda is a 276 acre woodland setting including a lake, trails, dining hall, cabins, program buildings and tent camping. Since the 1920s, Wokanda has been building memories of the glow and warmth of a campfire. Our cabins offer groups with an excellent base camp to explore the natural beauty of Central Illinois' wooded bluffs. In the process, campers learn a little bit more about their role in the natural world. Get back to nature!
Wokanda is located on Boy Scout Road in the wooded bluffs near Mossville. From Peoria, take Rt. 29 north, and turn left on Old Galena Road just north of Rt. 6. Follow this past Mossville Grade School, then turn left on Boy Scout Road, and proceed to the park entrance. If you would like more information, a tour of the facilities, or to make a reservation, please call the camp office at (309) 579-2157.
