This is a page designed to accumulate and store some random newspaper articles which are related to Camp iten. Starting out as a Boy Scout Camp, it was developed in the 1930s, about six miles west of Maquoketa, Jackson, Iowa, United States.

Apparently, Louis C. Iten, of Clinton, Iowa, (and Snow White Bakeries) funded the purchase of the land.
