Located in the heart of Appalachia in beautiful Dunmore, WV, Buckskin Scout Reservation sits on 2000 acres that borders the Greenbrier River, Seneca State Forest, and National Forrest land. The Allegheny Trail crosses the property along with other hiking trails, and a 17 acre lake sits in the middle of camp. The camp offers a multitude of programs for Scouts of all ages. BSR is only a short drive from Mount Hope, WV, the new site for National Jamboree and High Adventure Base. Buckskin Scout Reservation offers many of the same High Adventure Activities that will eventually be part of the program at the Summit.

The hi-res version is great if you intend to print a copy, but may load slowly on some computers because it is a very large image. You may want to right click and choose "save as" to download the image to your computer.
