Scout Area is a primitive campground in disguise! This area is awesome for groups to become one around the communal fire ring lined with log seats, or on a trip to see nearby historical landmarks. Wander just a half-mile from camp and the primitive life is just a fleeting thought with access to a plethora of amenities: a playground, restrooms, group picnic area, and a money fishing spot! If you wanna get really primitive, why not bite right into that first catch of yours? Survivorman-style!
