Tanadoona provides a beautiful natural setting for group rentals, retreats, field trips and weddings. Our 103-acre property located on Lake Minnewashta is bordered by Lake Minnewashta Regional Park, adding to the natural wildlife and outdoor experience. You’ll frequently see wildlife such as deer, turkeys, turtles and many birds like bald eagles, bluebirds, robins, woodpeckers and more!

We’re conveniently located in the southwest Twin Cities metro, but guests instantly feel like they’re far from the city.

Each summer, we offer 12 weeks of youth summer camp, leaving Tanadoona available for outside groups to enjoy September through May.

Groups may rent specific facilities or areas of camp or exclusive-use of the property. Note, our wedding package is the only rental option for weddings and provide exclusive use of the property.
