Description

The camp has a long sandy beach, campfire circles, running water, showers, and easy access from the main road. There is plenty of room for tenting in the grassed open areas of the camp. There are good roadways to the back of the camp, to the very popular "Newfoundland" field, next to the Northumberland Strait. There are buildings in the camp for group use. One building had major work done in 2012 including new windows, doors, roof, wheelchair access ramp, and washrooms. There is a log cabin, away from the headquarters area and accessible by a road. The cabin sleeps 8 and was updated in 2012 with many improvements including a new roof, raising and levelling, new door, and window screens. The Log Cabin is available year around. The rest of Camp Buchan is open May to November at this present time.

The camp faced closure in 2009.
