RFSR has six cabins for unit use. All come with two sets of bunk beds. The cabins are also equipped with electricity, A/C and heating.

Camping Areas

Rhodes-France currently has 13 campsites. Each campsite capacity is as different as the campsites themselves. Each campsite is equipped with at least one picnic table and a fire ring. Water is available seasonally from April to October.

Activity Building/Dining Hall

The Activity Building is used for a host of things, located just north of the Food Services/Trading Post Building. During mealtime it can be a dining hall complete with serving line inside the building. As soon as mealtime is over it can become a classroom for Scouts. During the evenings, the Activity Building may host a Cracker Barrel or ice cream social. The space also boasts a large stone fireplace.

Administration Building

The Administration Building is the centerpiece of the front of camp with a giant Eagle statue out front. Located down Bungard Parkway just across from McCoy Village, the newly renovated Administration Building is home to the camp director and program director’s office, first aid station, small kitchen, and meeting room, as well as adult-only restrooms and a women’s shower.


Located just southwest of the parking lot, is a beautiful, rustic open-air Chapel. With seating for over 100, the Chapel provides non-denominational services for Scouts and Leaders. It also provides a quiet area for reflection, meditation, or simply enjoying the scenery God has provided. Services are held Saturday evening or Sunday morning depending on programming needs.


One of the wonders at Rhodes-France Scout Reservation has to be the Firebowl Arena. This picturesque amphitheater is set on Lake Millikin with the woods as a backdrop. Straight across from the Firebowl arena at the  top of the hill, the Order of the Arrow Ceremonial Tipi can often be seen.
