Rent a Campsite

Welcome to the GSEP campsite rental page! Site availability can be viewed online. Reservations may be made directly online (for GSEP members only). Sites cannot be "held" until registration is made online. Service Units will need to request reservations for camporees using the printed SU Camporee application. Camporee lotteries occur twice a year (see application for dates).

Non-GSEP groups: please contact us at campfacilities@gsep.org for availability and pricing.

Troops/group leaders, families, and outside groups must follow all GSEP and GSUSA standards and rules governing usage of council sites, and will receive a camp confirmation packet after reservation confirmation.

If you have any questions about lodging/activities, pricing, or capacity, out our Facilities Guide.

To reserve a campsite:

Step 1: Click on the camp property you wish to visit in the drop down below
Step 2: Choose your date range
Step 3: Select your site by clicking on an available space, indicated in blue (You may choose as many sites as needed.)
Step 4: Click reserve and enter customer and payment information (customer address should match credit card billing address)
*Please note: You must read and click to agree to the terms and conditions in order to complete your reservation.

NOTE:
For any overnight trips, use the lodging links. If you are using a building for activities (climbing wall, pavilion use, meeting room, archery, etc.), reserve using the activities link. If you are planning a trip that includes both an overnight stay and activities, complete steps 1-4 on both the lodging and activities pages. Watch this video if you need help making your campsite and/or lodging reservation.
