The Eagle Lodge is a classic camp building at the foot of the Main Road in East Camp, adjacent to Pine Point and beautiful Browning Pond. Once known as the Commissary, then as a bunkhouse, and more recently as a year-round Trading Post, the Eagle Lodge is once again a fall-winter-spring bunkhouse.
A large main room has nine double bunks for a total youth capacity of 18. A separate adult bunk room has four single bunks. Various tables and chairs are also provided.
The Eagle Lodge has electricity, wi-fi, and a wood stove for heating. Though the wood stove does a decent job, in very cold weather please ensure that all participants bring winter sleeping bags and have plenty of warm dry clothes. The building is handicapped accessible; if you require the ramp in times of heavy snow, please be sure to let us know.
The Eagle Lodge does not have bathrooms but the year-round Boonesville Restroom is a short walk away. Likewise, this building does not have a kitchen and cooking is not allowed indoors. Picnic tables are available nearby on Pine Point and units are encouraged to bring whatever shelters and cooking equipment they normally do for camping trips. If you would like half-barrels please let us know. Water is available at the Magee Lodge as is true for all of East Camp in the cold weather months. In times of heavy snow, parking near the Eagle Lodge may be limited.
The Magee Village is a group of four small cabins perfect for your unit campout.
