at the Horseshoe Scout Reservation
Thank you for your interest in visiting the Horseshoe Scout Reservation. Online reservations for the 2019 - 2020 weekend camping season opens at 9 a.m. on August 18, 2019. We look forward to hosting your unit during the upcoming months!
Our goal is to simply streamline the reservation process and, by utilizing online technology, we can accomplish this task quite easily. The following web pages contain updated and current information such as the reservation calendar showing a month by month chart of the current availability of HSR’s cabins and campsites, the required forms and paperwork for checking in and out of camp, contact phone numbers, email addresses and a convenient, easy to use online reservation procedure.
Please keep in mind prior to making a reservation that in accordance with the Boy Scouts of America’s Guide to Safe Scouting, Cub Scouts are not permitted to participate in “winter camping”. The CCCBSA defines winter camping as sleeping outdoors in a tent, Adirondack or any other un-heated shelter. For all Cub and Webelos Scouts, camping in a tent, Adirondack or un-heated structure from the period of November 15th through March 15th is not permitted. In addition, if a pack outing is conducted during the months when tent camping is permitted, other accommodations or arrangements must be made if the outside, overnight temperature is forecasted to fall below 45°. At all times however, Cub scouts are permitted to “cabin camp”. A cabin is defined as a four-walled, heated hard covered structure.
Again, our sincerest thanks for your interest in the Horseshoe Scout Reservation’s weekend camping program. Should you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us.
