Welcome to Camp Tuckabatchee

Camp Tuckabatchee is located 90 miles west of Chicago on Route 80 North of Ottawa, Illinois on Route 23. The camp covers 210 acres of wooded hills and valleys with trails running throughout. There are rustic cabins for sleeping in the main camp area. The main lodge features a dining area with a huge stone hearth and a modern kitchen. Volc Lodge provides year-round camping with indoor restrooms, 2 fireplaces, a furnace, and a kitchen. Crooked Leg Creek provides a natural play area and lulls campers to sleep at night.

In addition to our summer youth camp program, the camp is available for use by organizations, clubs, church groups, and private groups.
