The Twin Cities' Best Kept Secret

Camp Eden Wood

Camp Eden Wood

Feels like a world away from city life. Metro area groups can enjoy that "up north" experience without the long drive. Camp Eden Wood is tucked in the woods on Birch Island Lake just west of where I-494 meets Highway 62 in Eden Prairie. It's ideal for meetings and offers rustic yet comfortable overnight accommodations.

The 6,000 square foot Welcome Lodge features a fully-staffed catering kitchen and is equipped with a guest computer and free wireless Internet access. It provides an ideal location for meetings and seminars.

Our newly-renovated Dormitory is among the exceptional buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It's in the center of Eden Wood's 20 beautiful acres. The Dormitory was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999. Built in 1925, the building was the summer home to children from the Glen Lake Sanatorium who were diagnosed or exposed to tuberculosis. The Glen Lake Children’s camp operated from 1925-1950. It is the only camp of its type left in Minnesota, one of two left in the United States, and the only one still operating in line with original purpose, as a children’s camp.

Three additional cabins provide a range of additional lodging options.
