Yards Creek Scout Reservation
Central New Jersey Council

A 510 acre Scouting retreat located on the grounds of the Yards Creek Pumping Station in Blairstown, New Jersey within hiking distance of the Appalachian Trail and the Delaware River, and an easy drive to the Delaware Water Gap. Currently, the camp is limited to short-term use. This is an excellent opportunity for units that want to do day trips to the Appalachian Trail or to the Delaware River and need a place to camp for a few nights.

Some camp photos, a little out-of-date. Would someone like to provide some newer or better photos?
