Fred C. Andersen Scout Camp

Houlton, WI


Honoring the generous support of the Andersen Windows founder, Fred C. Andersen Scout Camp sits directly on the banks of the scenic St. Croix River, near Stillwater. Opened in 1928, this camp is a perfect spot to launch a canoe trip or plan an overnight campout. 150 foot bluffs of solid rock divide the property into two levels with 260 acres of dense forest, open fields, and unique rock formations to explore. If you’re planning a trip here, you’ll want to make sure to check out Friendship Rock and historic Good Medicine Lodge.
