Iroquois Campsite

Iroquois is a site that has it all! Loads of shade where the tents are located and a roomy new shelter provide plenty of cover from the sun or elements. Two distinct camping areas also allow a unit to split up between patrols, age groups, or even allow two smaller units to share the site yet camp with a fair amount of autonomy. In the off-season, Iroquois offers more shelter from chilly winds off of the Pond than most of our other sites because of its location.

Site capacity: For small or medium sized units, especially those needing to split their contingent
Special Features: Grassy center with nicely shaded woods all around
Latrine type: Classic-style pit latrine

Site Access

Site is at the end of it's own trail off the main road to COPE and can be easily accessed by 4WD SUVs and light trucks. There is room enough for one or two vehicle to be left at the site in the off season. A trailer can be towed to the site. Turn-around space is a little tight due to the layout of the site and narrowness of the road, so some heads-up planning is needed before everyone drives into the site. Site is a 5-minute walk downhill from the Dining Hall.
