Camp Fiddlecreek is approximately 45 minutes west of downtown St. Louis and encompasses 83 acres.
The valley in which Camp Fiddlecreek is nestled in drew its name, as legend has it, from the old-time fiddlers in the area. The creek running through camp is known as Fiddler's Creek because so many barns were built in the area with the tongue-and-grove jointed flooring, a special smooth finish floor, which was perfect for square dancing and this brought out the old-time fiddlers to play their lively music for dances.
At this beautiful, yet petite, camp, girls can hike Borderline Trail, explore nature activities on the Whitaker Woodland Wonders Nature Trail and examine the log cabin building or stonework Monk’s Bathtub that are a part of the camp's history.
Units include winterized lodges, permanent tents, a primitive site and a day outing area. A swimming pool is available for troop/group use if they have a lifeguard present. At Walker Lake, campers can paddle around in canoes or sit by the all-camp campfire and enjoy the night sky.
