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.
Tenting Area 2 (near the Magee Cabin on the Map) – there are no tent platforms but room for approximately 20 tents. A fire pit is available for those late night campfires. The camp composting restroom facility is a short walk, as is year-round water at the Ranger’s House.

The camp composting restroom facility is about 900′ away and is accessible by a trail that runs parallel to the road. Water is available at the Ranger’s House year-round.
The Magee Village is a group of four small cabins perfect for your unit campout. Named after George Magee, three of the buildings were constructed to support a growing camp with funding from the George Magee Memorial Trust. One building was constructed with funds from Camp Alumni and is ADA accessible. The group of cabins has a fire pit and picnic tables for gathering together and cooking meals. Each cabin has three bunk beds with mattresses. A nearby composting restroom facility is just a few steps away. Water is available nearby and the camp shower house is just a short walk away. The cabins are NOT heated and can not support space heaters.
The Chippewa campsite is located on the western side of camp between the Apache and Sioux campsites. One of the smaller campsites in camp, the site is perfect for one patrol.

Water is available at the nearby Apache and Sioux latrines while the centrally located shower house is only a few minutes away (Seasonal Water Availability). The campsite is also fortunate to have a compositing bathroom facility that is shared with other nearby campsites. Parking for units is in the nearby western parking lot.
