Camp Nauvoo

Camp Nauvoo is a beautiful 30 acre campground located on the south side of Historic Nauvoo. Set on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, Camp Nauvoo offers a spectacular view. Nauvoo’s Historic sites are only 1.2 miles away and the LDS Temple is approximately 1.4 miles north of the campgrounds. Owned by the Community of Christ Nauvoo Mission Center, its major focus is to provide a place for camping experiences for church youth and families. It is available to other groups and individual families when not scheduled for these activities.  It is a great place for youth groups and family reunions - plenty of space.  Give us a call (217-453-9930 or my cell phone - 217-242-0379) or send us an email ( and we will get back to you.
