Does your unit want to use the camp property for the day to hike and explore? Units can use the camp as a basecamp for their day activity. Members of the unit must check in and out with the camp ranger and are limited to usage of the parking area and bathrooms. Usage of the open fields must be coordinated ahead of time.
A canoe trailer is available for rent. The trailer can hold a maximum of 6 canoes. Units may use their own canoes or rent the camp’s canoes ($20 each; comes with paddles and PFDs). Units renting the trailer can not use the boats on camp property or launch nearby and must trailer the boats elsewhere. Units reserve the trailer for a weekend and must schedule pick-up and drop-off with the Camp Ranger. Earliest pick up available is Wednesday before your reservation and the latest drop-off is the Tuesday after.
