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.
This listing is for our Bluebird Lodge. Bluebird is heated for year-round use. The upper-level features bunk beds – sleeping 30 (2 sleeping areas) – and a common area with seating and stone fireplace. A walk-out basement features a kitchen (including pots, pans, dishes and utensils), open floor plan for multi-purpose use, folding tables and chairs, and views of the Big Woods forest.
Note that the bathhouse (including showers) is located approximately 50 feet from the lodge. There is not a bathroom inside Bluebird Lodge.
Additional facilities are available for rent, including rustic cabins (no electricity), yurt and a dining hall with seating for 80 people. To learn more about additional rental opportunities at Tanadoona, please inquire.
Each summer, we offer 12 weeks of camp, leaving Tanadoona available for outside groups to enjoy September through May. Whether you’re looking for a half-day meeting or a multi-day event, we can help you plan your upcoming event. Groups may rent specific facilities or exclusive use of the property. For exclusive use rentals, please inquire.
All groups are welcome to our recreational activities, including basketball hoop, volleyball net, soccer goals, gaga ball pits, sports equipment and hiking trails. Camp Fire Minnesota's trained staff are also available to lead team-building and other activities for your group, upon request during booking.
