Camp Esquagama, formerly the St. Louis County 4-H Club Camp, is a summer camp in Biwabik Township, Minnesota, United States. It was established on the east shore of Esquagama Lake in 1934 with the first place prize money from a contest to name the best county 4-H program in the nation. The logs were donated by the Oliver Iron Mining Company and labor furnished by local Civilian Conservation Corps and Works Progress Administration companies. The camp was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985 for its local significance in the themes of architecture, entertainment/recreation, and social history. It was nominated for its exemplary log construction and unique origin.
