Our council has several properties available for use by Units (packs, troops, crews, ships, posts) from within our council as well as making these facilities available to out-of-council Scout groups, churches, school groups, other non-profits and businesses.
Scouting activities are covered by the insurance our council already covers; non-Scouting activities require those outside groups to provide proof of insurance or purchase additional coverage which will cover the council as "Additionally Insured".
There are four camps available for use, as well as the council office in Tupelo. The council has one additional property in Lafayette County that is a "timber income property" that is not available for recreational use.
The camp is located about 30 minutes east-southeast (ESE) of Booneville, MS on a peninsula surrounded by Bay Springs Lake. Tent camping is available and you need to bring your own water. There are no permanent facilities.
Located 10 minutes north of Starkville, MS, Camp Seminole is a year-round resident camping facility offering tent and limited cabin camping, developed program facilities, dining hall, shelters, fishing/boating lake, shooting ranges and more.
Located on Sardis Lake about 20 minutes northwest of Oxford, MS. This property is surrounded by forested lands, mountain bike trails and is adjacent to the Clear Creek Landing boat ramp. Developed tent camping spots, fire rings, a pavilion with power and tables, and hot water and flush toilets are part of this facility.
Located 20 minutes west of Pontotoc, MS, Camp Yocona is a year-round resident camping facility offering cabin and tent camping options, as well as developed program facilities, shelters, fishing/boating lake, shooting ranges and more.
