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. 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 Probus Lodge is a small cozy building that can sleep 10 people. It is one room, has electricity and also contains an indoor wood burning stove, and an outdoor fire pit. It is not much bigger than Thoreau’s Cabin on Walden Pond but it offers a similar location for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. It is located very close to the Magee Center.
A large main room has eight double bunks for a capacity of 16 youth. This main room eventually will have a folding wall allowing separate quarters for male and female youth as needed. There are two adult bunk rooms each sleeping five individuals. If one of the adult bunk rooms is not needed by a particular unit, youth may be housed there as well. Tables, chairs, and wi-fi are also available in this building.
The Mohegan Lodge is heated with a propane-fired forced hot air heating system. This facility is intended primarily as a warm place to sleep and do limited activities in cold-weather months. The Mohegan 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. Half-barrels and picnic tables are available outdoors and units are encouraged to bring whatever shelters and cooking equipment they normally do for camping trips. Water is available at the Magee Lodge as is true for all of East Camp in the cold weather months. Parking areas near the Mohegan Lodge are plowed in winter.
Units seeking heated amenities including kitchen, dining, bathrooms, and showers are welcome to rent the West Lodge and/or Venture Lodge.
Central Lodge (also known as the Dining Hall) is located in the center of camp and is perfect for a large gathering. This building features ample seating for even the largest events. The fully stocked kitchen, complete with ovens, mixers, dishwashing, and refrigeration, can be used for your group’s family outing or fundraising bake sale. Hot and cold water is available between May and October, and cold water can be located at the Ranger’s house year round. (Use of the kitchen may be limited based on the operation of the water system.) A total of 50 eight-person tables can be set up in the dining hall area along with a salad bar for a buffet line. The building is handicapped accessible.
The Smith Family Pavilion is the home of the summer camp handicraft program. This pavilion is a large open air pavilion that can be used for gatherings, trainings, or whatever your unit can think of. A number of cafeteria style folding tables are in the pavilion, as well as lights and electricity. Access to the storage room is not available to rentals. A nearby wash sink is available with seasonal water. Renters can use the back entrance of the Main Field to load/unload supplies but parking for all vehicles is in the main parking lot. Renters can also use parts of the main field.
Memorial Lodge is located in the main parking lot of the camp. The cabin was initially constructed to house the camp museum but the need of housing for camp staff and seasonal rentals converted the building into a bunkhouse. This cabin is divided into two rooms with bunk beds perfect to separate youth and adults. A nearby area outside is perfect for your unit to set up an outdoor kitchen while you enjoy your meal inside the warmth of the cabin from the wood stove. The lower camp 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 camp amphitheater is around the corner and units can use the fire pit located there for a late night campfire. Wi-Fi internet is available at the nearby Administration building, however it is limited in speed.
