The following camp areas are available for reservation.  See the Map for their location in camp.

Main Cabin
The main cabin with its large raised hearth stone fireplace and potbelly stove, for keeping out New England winters.  Inside are tables and benches for serving meals or using electronic training aids or just reading your handbook.  An attached room with a small wood stove serves well as a food preparation site.  Due to local codes sleeping is not permitted in the cabin.

Just out the front door is an area with a large outdoor cooking grill and a 24 x 16 foot pavilion and several picnic tables.  Lighting makes this area useable at night.  A water hydrant is located outside the back door and a latrine is another short walk further.  The whole center camp area over looks the two-acre Ennis Pond.
