Eagle Lodge

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.

 

Magee Village

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.

Chippewa Campsite

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. The campsite has a fire pit for those endless evening campfires. Outfitted with tent platforms, the campsite also has a picnic table to gather around. 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.

Upper Boonesville

Upper Boonesville is an open tenting area for units. A composting toilet facility is located nearby.

South Pavilion

Pavilion located on the South side of Ridge Road, just above the Boonesville parking lot. Restrooms located just a short walk from the shelter at the Boonesville Latrine. Picnic tables provided with the shelter. Half barrels available on request.

North Pavilion

Pavilion located on the North side of Ridge Road, just above the Boonesville parking lot. Restrooms located just a short walk from the shelter at the Boonesville Latrine. Picnic tables provided with the shelter. Half barrels available on request.

Probus Lodge

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.

Mohegan Lodge

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.
