Description

Located on the Niagara Escarpment, the camp has two lodges both with complete kitchens, electrically heated, bunk platforms, and hot and cold running water. One lodge has flush toilets in the same building while the other has a wood-burning fireplace and flush toilets in a separate building.

There is a picnic shelter, nine campsites, including one with an Adirondack shelter, and open areas consisting of four separate fields which can easily accommodate 1000 campers. Additional water and toilet facilities are located throughout the camp.

Various nature trails are available in camp and access to the Bruce Trail is across the road. On the Bruce Trail, it is a 17 km hike south to Mount Nemo Scout Camp, a 3.5 km hike north to Crawford Lake Conservation Area which features a reconstructed Native village, and a 10.9 km hike north to Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area which has caves and group camping.
