General Information

Look for our Pack 200 signs as you drive in.

The Group Campsite at Satterwhite Point will be our base camp.

This site is actually on the East side of Satterwhite Point, opposite of the JC Cooper camping areas. Look for the “1” triangle shown on the following Satterwhite Point map.

Practice Leave No Trace and Good Citizenship

Class B “Activity Uniforms” all weekend

Use the “Buddy System” all weekend at camp

Saturday Activity

Our den leaders have opted to change this trip to focus on the New Adventures and related requirements on this first year.  There will not be a joint Pack activity other than the Campfire on Saturday night and a religious observance on Sunday.

Parking and admission is free for our campers. There is an advertised fee to visit the daytime use sections of the park (ramps, playground, hiking trails, et al), but we just need to tell the ranger that we are part of the Group Camping Site and it should be free.
