Boy Scout Camps

General Information   |   Location   |   Subcamps

Tomahawk is divided into three separate Boy Scout sub-camps, a High Adventure Base, an Arrow of Light Camp, and a Family Camp.  We have something for everyone, whether you are young or old, you can partake in the fun at Tomahawk. 

Full Service Boy Scout Camps

Troops and Crews will eat all three meals with 'family-style' service in our Dining Hall.  The energy is high in the dining and there is always a staff member nearby to answer questions.

  • It borders Long Lake and surrounds Lake Neilsen
  • It has its own Fishing Marina
  • Contains 15 Beautiful Campsites
  • Has tenting on the ground, with flexible arrangements

Food Service:

"Full Service" Troops and Crews will be delivered their food in heater stacks directly to their campsite. This dining style is a quiet and peaceful way to spead quality time with your unit. Troops and Crews also have the option to bring and cook their own food at camp for a reduced rate compared to "full service" campers. This option is available in Chippewa and White Pine as well, but fits perfectly into the Sioux Camp program.  There is ice available in the trading post to keep your food cold and walk-in cooler space upon request.


  • Sioux Camp makes up the southern tip of the Tomahawk peninsula and is open to the widest part of the lake, which is great for sailing!
  • Contains 15 Beautiful Campsites
  • Has tenting on the ground, with flexible arrangements

We are the fun-filled, affordable vacation destination. Tomahawk Scout Reservation offers programs and facilities for families at our Family Island.
