This beautiful camp and retreat center just a hop, skip, and jump from Redlands California nestled at the base of the San Bernardino foothills. There is so much to offer including a summer swimming pool, hiking and biking trails, multiple lodging options and meeting space galore! If you are looking for a small group getaway, or a large group getaway, we would love the opportunity to serve you at our California venue!

We are a nonprofit organization with nonprofit pricing, our aim is to host your group and help you create memories. With 160 acres at an elevation of 3900′ we have stunning views and a beautiful creek running right through camp. The sounds are amazing. A short hike up the well maintained path leads you to Inspiration Point where you will find beautiful vistas a bench seating.

We have multiple lodging options, including bunk houses and a fully fledged retreat house, Campbell Lodge complete with bedrooms, gathering areas and a kitchen. We offer meal service or ask as about renting our commercial kitchen and dining hall.

One of the best things about Loch Leven Camp & Retreat is the proximity to Redlands and surrounding areas, but once you meander up the gently curved road to the retreat center you feel secluded in all the best ways.
