Cobourg Scout Reserve is in Northumberland County Forest noted for the extensive hiking and cross country ski trails available to campers. This camp is nestled at the base of a large hill with many secluded campsites, chapel area and large campfire circle. This is a beautiful rolling site with a very large hill for excellent winter activities within site of both cabins. Good road access with large parking lot.

In January, 2021, Scouts Canada announced that they had, without consulting the membership, ended the lease as of December 31, permanently closing Cobourg Scout Reserve.
