McDowell Creek Camp is nestled on 40 picturesque acres located within walking distance of the majestic McDowell Creek Falls and only a short drive from the town of Lebanon. The camp was acquired in 1954 and is currently owned and operated by the Sodaville Evangelical Church.
Over the last 60+ years the camp has served the Christian community throughout the Willamette Valley as a destination of choice for church retreats, children’s bible day camps, school camps, outdoor worship services and other various church and private events. Campers at McDowell Creek have had the opportunity to learn and grow in Christ on a property that features forested hiking trails, a meandering creek and expansive open grassy areas. The camp features well-loved facilities that include a three story rustic lodge building suitable for group meetings, covered picnic shelter and a care-taker’s home.
