Pine Ridge Camp

Tall pines, abundant wildlife, Little Grassy Lake, wild flowers, and beautiful sunsets make Pine Ridge Scout Camp an excellent location for Scouts. This 150-acre camp is nestled in the heart of the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge and located in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest along the shore of Little Grassy Lake, southeast of Carbondale, Ill. The Shawnee River Trail, the Crab Orchard and Panthers Den Wilderness all surround the lakes of this refuge giving Scouts unbelievable outdoor resources at their disposal.
