​​​​Tent Camping & Campfires

  • DO NOT bring any outside firewood, as this may contribute to the spread of destructive invasive insects. Several recently introduced insects - including the Spotted Lanternfly, Emerald ash borer, Asian long-horned beetle, and Sirex woodwasp – can be transported long distances in/on firewood. Once transported into new areas they can become established and kill local trees.
  • There will be an ample supply of firewood and kindling onsite in our covered woodshed.
  • Please review our Camping & Campfire Policies and Ground Rules before reserving, and be sure to follow them once onsite.​


​​Guided Hikes
Our staff is first aid/CPR certified and knowledgeable about the local ecology and history of the area, and ready to lead your troop on a forest exploration. Our beautiful 152-acre property in the Highlands Region of northern New Jersey features a mountain stream, rugged terrain, diverse forest, ruins, and some nice viewpoints. Pricing:
​1 hour - up to 12 scouts: $50; 13-25 scouts: $75. Please call for larger groups.
1-2 hours - up to 12 scouts: $75; 13-25 scouts: $100. Please call for larger groups.​​


Facility Rentals

Our outdoor facilities are the perfect spot to hold your troop meetings and other events. We also offer a discount off the regular, single day rental fee for troops wishing to reserve multiple dates for their ongoing activities. Learn more about our facilities and see pricing.

Badge Classes

(In Person & Virtual)


Scouts BSA and Cub Scouts can sign-up for our scheduled badge classes individually or with other troop members. We also encourage Scoutmasters to schedule a private class for your troop.


​Service Hours and Projects
Scouts have completed many service hours completing much needed garden and grounds work, including seasonal cleanups and clean-out of outbuildings. We are grateful to have been chosen as the site for many larger projects as well, including Life and Eagle Scout. ​​There are still many projects just waiting for the right Scouts to lend a hand!
