Ahladokambos (Greek: Αχλαδόκαμπος) is a village and a former community in Argolis, Peloponnese, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Argos-Mykines, of which it is a municipal unit.[2] Population 654 (2001). It is located on a mountainside approximately midway between Argos and Tripoli (~30 km from each) at an elevation of approximately 450 meters.

The community has, through a project with the Ministry of Development and EEN Hellas SA (a subsidiary of the French energy holding company EDF Energies Nouvelles), installed 10 Vestas V90-3MW wind turbines on the mountain above the village.

A significant number of emigrants from Achladokampos have settled in the United States since the early 20th century and have formed the Brotherhood of Achladokambiton as a means of keeping in touch.
