Queen's Castle, also known as Camp Fossenvue or simply Fossenvue, is the remnant of a historic camp located at Lodi in Seneca County, New York. It is a rustic, lakeside camp structure built about 1881 on the shore of Seneca Lake. It is a one story, roughly square, 17 feet, 6 inches by 18 feet, structure surmounted by a steeply pitched wood shingled hipped roof. It is the sole surviving component of Camp Fossenvue, established in 1875 as an informal, lakeside summer retreat for liberally minded young women could indulge in a variety of radical, even scandalous, intellectual, physical, and recreational activities. Its last year of operation as a women's camp was in 1901. In 1924, the site was sold to the Elmira Council of Boy Scouts for Camp Seneca, which continued to operate until 1989. The United States Department of Agriculture purchased the property in 1996, adding it to the Finger Lakes National Forest.
Fossenvue is an anagram for "seven of us".
