United Methodist Camp - Monticello, Iowa
     Pictured Rocks United Methodist Camp was established in 1960 as a summer camp and year-round retreat center. Adjacent to the camp is a state wildlife refuge, Pictured Rocks, which provides access to limestone bluffs and the scenic South Fork of the Maquoketa River. Owned and operated by the Iowa Conference of the United Methodist Church, its purpose is to provide "opportunities for persons to grow in their relationship to God, especially in His redeeming love as revealed in Jesus Christ." We welcome usage by local churches and other organizations with purposes consistent with our Christian principles.

     The camp is available for Youth, Adults, and Families, local church retreats, district retreats, vacation bible schools, family reunions, school systems, hiking, and nature study. Lodges, kitchens, picnic shelters, overhead projectors, TVs, VCRs, ping pong table, projection screen, sound system, and other items are available with advanced reservations. Tent and trailer camping available from May to September. Optional canoe rentals, rappelling, hiking, volleyball, basketball, snow tubing, and X-country skiing are also available.
