Camp Wanica


McElwee Lodge, built in the 1930s, sits atop a rise in the tree shaded acres of East Texas. You will find the lodge, along with cabins, swimming pool, Discovery Theatre, playground, cook-out area, basketball court, and volleyball court; the ideal site for your camping or recreational experience.

Cabins are available for overnight stays or weekend rentals. We have two large cabins in which heat and air conditioning are available.

The swimming pool is situated on the lodge grounds next to the bath house, and can also be rented daily or by the hour.

While the camp is utilized mostly by small groups desiring a brief respite from “city living”, it is also a beautiful setting for weddings, receptions, anniversary celebrations, and birthday parties as well as company picnics, church retreats, business seminars, family reunions, class reunions, civic club events and school field trips.

Located just south of Corsicana off Highway 287, Camp Wanica is accessible to the stores and shops of town, but is isolated enough to give participants the full flavor and rustic ambience of “camping out.”

Book early – the summer months fill up fast!
