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 and operated by the Cedar Valley-Nauvoo Mission Center, a division of Community of Christ, 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 Community of Christ activities. It is a great place for youth groups and family reunions.
