About Us

What began as a Camp Fire Girls camp, Camp McFadden has made many transitions since its founding in 1927. Our recent transition has been from a rental only camp, back to a residential camp, while still maintaining year round rentals.

Here at Camp McFadden we offer rentals such as RV hookups, tent space, lodge rentals, and cabin rentals. We have 8 cabins all together, 2 that rent year round. Our “Ambuc” cabins are handicapped accessible and meet all requirements for year round renting.

On site at Camp McFadden we also have a large Lodge that is perfect for family reunions or other large gatherings. Other amenities offered at Camp McFadden consist of: volley ball, horse shoes, canoe pond, high and low ropes course, playground equipment, hiking trails, nature center, kitchen (located in the lodge), bath house, and archery range. For rental information take a look at our rental page.

Camp McFadden is proud to offer seven summer camp sessions for children ages 6-18. Camp McFadden Adventure Camp is a general outdoor, nature camp that will give campers the opportunity to understand and enjoy the wonders of their environment.

Camp McFadden

This original sign was one of the only items brought to the new location when Kaw Lake was built in 1975. The other item sits over the fireplace in our lodge and commemorates the first year Camp McFadden was operational in 1927 as a Camp Fire Girls camp.


This photo gives you a perspective of the layout of our cabins and lodge. A short walk to the water, Camp McFadden has about 250 acres and sits on the western shore of Kaw Lake, 2 miles from the dam and 8 miles east of Ponca City, Oklahoma.


These cabins, 6 total, are for rent through out the year when Summer Camp is not in session, and share a common bath house. Each cabin has ten single beds and air conditioning. Recently remodeled they have new windows and insulation.

Summer Camp

During the heat of summer here in Oklahoma the Summer Campers spent countless hours in the waters of not just Kaw Lake but also our two ponds.
