The first campsite on the right-hand side of Snake River Road, Arrow is the summertime home of Treasure Valley’s CIT (Counselor in Training) program and is also available for fall-winter-spring camping. The campsite has two patrol sites with three two-man platforms each, one two-man staff platform (for a platform capacity of 14 people), a completely enclosed hard-roofed shelter, and a year-round vault latrine. The access road is currently very rough and is not plowed in winter. Care must be taken driving in and out and there is very limited parking in the campsite. Guests are strongly encouraged to park at the nearby Magee Lodge, where water is available year-round through an exterior spigot. The heated Central Restroom is across the street from the Magee Lodge.
Arrow is also the site of our two newest Adirondack Shelters, currently referred to as Adirondack A and Adirondack B. The first structure was funded by a legacy gift from Pachachaug Lodge 525, Order of the Arrow; the second by the Chuck and Monica McQuaid Family Foundation. Both Adirondacks were built by our volunteer Friends of Treasure Valley with the support of our Ranger, Matt McLaughlin. These Adirondacks each feature four built-in wooden double bunks for a capacity of eight people each (for a combined Adirondack capacity of 16 people). Guests may wish to bring a foam pad or air mattress. A privacy panel and bench allow for changing. There are no fireplaces in front of these structures, and units should carefully consider whether they are appropriate for very cold-weather camping. The campsite has a fire ring with benches along with picnic tables. Half-barrels and stands can be provided for cooking on request.
The Upper Adirondacks are located near the Bouldering Program area. Consisting of 4 three-sided structures, each building contains two bunk beds to sleep 4 people each. There is a nearby area that is suitable for a few tents as well. A composting restroom facility is nearby, while water is available year-round at the Ranger’s House. A fire pit is nearby and can be used with deadfall wood found around the camp (split cordwood is only available for units renting cabins).
The Lower Adirondacks are located near the Bouldering Program area. Consisting of 4 three-sided structures, each building contains two bunkbeds to sleep 4 people each. There is a nearby area that is suitable for a few tents as well. A composting restroom facility is nearby, while water is available year-round at the Ranger’s House. A fire pit is nearby and can be used with deadfall wood found around the camp (split cordwood is only available for units renting cabins).
The Outpost campsite is located at the extreme northern end of camp and is perfect for the unit that wants to have a more primitive camping experience. The site is located right off of Upper Jaffrey Rd. and has a number of three-sided adirondacks with bunk beds (bring your own camp mattress). The site is open and has plenty of space for your unit to spread out for the weekend. The campsite has a gathering area and fire pit for those endless evening campfires. The campsite also has a number of picnic tables to gather around. Water is available at the Ranger’s house and the shower house is a short hike away (Seasonal Water Availability). Cars can park in the campsite as long as they are off the road. Additional vehicles need to be parked in one of the camp parking lots.
