To view facility information and upcoming events, click on the logo or the corresponding link below. Below the three location links are rental rules and guidelines.


Timely Reservations:


To better manage our camps, we request that units make facility reservations at least two weeks in advance. That way we can assure that the camp is properly staffed.

The online reservation system blocks all attempts to make a reservation less than two weeks prior to a desired date.  Units requesting a short-term camp reservation less than two weeks before a desired camping trip must contact to check availability.

Payment System:

Credit cards and eChecks are accepted online. Cash and check payments must be processed in-person.

You can make multiple reservations prior to check-out by selecting "add items" and selecting another facility/campsite.

To make a full weekend reservation, please select the Saturday date as the date of rental to see availability from Friday to Saturday and Saturday to Sunday.

Non-Scouting Groups:

Please contact us at for more information. Non-Scouting Groups may reserve campsites and facilities at BCSR or MFSR.
Due to deed restrictions McGimsey Scout Park may only be rented out to BSA chartered units.

Cancellation Policy:

Rentals cancelled earlier than 3 days prior to the arrival of the reservation are transferable; otherwise you will receive a refund by check minus a 20% cancellation fee. If the reservation is cancelled within 3 days, no refund will be given. Transferable reservations are only valid within the same calendar year of cancellation of original date. Example: if the original reservation was planned for June  and cancelled sooner than 3 days, transferred reservation must be used by December 31st of the same year.

All refund requests must be made in writing to
