Our Camps

The Ohio River Valley Council owns and operates two unique scouting properties.

Sandscrest Scout Reservation

Sandscrest Scout Camp is also home to the Ohio River Valley Council offices. Located just minutes out of Wheeling, we feature a full office and scout shop on this small piece of West Virginia’s beautiful panhandle. The camp features a training facility with three meeting rooms, kitchen and a bathroom with shower. There are several medium sized pavilions with picnic tables near the training center itself, as well as Adirondack type cabins for camping near the lake. The camp also boasts four rustic cabins. In addition, we have a small gun/archery range available and a catch and release fishing pond. Hiking trails around the property will give you access to many of nature’s flora and fauna.

Fort Steuben Scout Reservation

Fort Steuben Scout Reservation is located on Clendening Lake, nestled in between Piedmont and Tappan Lakes located in southwestern Harrison County, Ohio, in Washington and Nottingham townships. The Buckeye Trail is nearby, and Tappan Lake has many trails as well. With access to the Muskingum Watershed’s Lake Clendening, you will not find a better waterfront experience. We would like to invite you to experience the pristine shoreline, excellent fishing and quiet evenings that Clendening Lake has to offer. As the largest undeveloped lake in Ohio, Clendening offers a true back-to- nature experience, far from the crowds, yet close to home. It’s a great place for boating, fishing, paddle sports, hiking, and many more outdoor activities.
