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.

Flyover

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.

Cabins

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.
