Camp Koch

Girl Scouts of Southwest Indiana's resident camp facility, Camp Henry F. Koch, covers approximately 500 acres of rugged woodland in the hills along the Ohio River near Cannelton, IN. It is maintained and protected by a year-round resident Ranger, Frank Spangler.

Since 1942, girls and adults have been enjoying all that Camp Koch has to offer. Several hiking trails to points of natural beauty within the camp provide an opportunity to explore nature. The developed area of the camp includes a small lake divided into swimming and boating areas, a dining hall, a play field, and indoor and outdoor sleeping accommodations.

What you should know when visiting the site: The land is difficult; it includes steep hills throughout the facility and requires individuals to walk long distances uphill and down to get from activity to activity. If you have concerns about accessibility at camp, please contact GSSI’s office at 812-421-4970 or email
