Lodge/Cabin Area:The Lodge is the hub of all gatherings in this beautiful area, with the large well equipped kitchen and stone fireplace and large great room for eating, visiting or any type of social mingling. The warming hut and shower house/restroom building with the huge outside covered patio and smaller kitchen is a great place to barbecue on warm nights or bright days. The twelve cabins have five or six bunk beds to accommodate ten to twelve people each. Some have wood burning stoves for those cooler nights. The special needs cabin is beautifully built with all the comforts of home for adults or families with small babies or special needs campers. Complete with a full kitchen, living room with fireplace, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom this cabin can sleep up to 5 adults. Outside the Lodge is a fun playground area for kids complete with swings, slides, climbing wall and more. Everyone will enjoy the horse shoe pits, basketball area and a fire pit. There is always something for everyone to do.
River Pavilion:The River Pavilion is a beautiful "mini Lodge" with a large stone fireplace, kitchen, and great room for eating and gatherings. In this unique area, campers will be "roughing it" in their own tents or they can set up their own camp trailers, but there are no hook-ups so they must be fully contained. The shower house/restroom building is located up a small hill from the pavilion. The beautiful Blacks Fork River is right in the back yard of this area and is great for fishing, hiking or watching wildlife.
Yurt:About a mile from the lodge is the Yurt, a canvas structure on a large deck. Inside is a wood burning stove, a bunk bed with a double mattress on bottom and a single on top. A couch and two chairs complete the setting. There is a beautiful cupboard area for food prep inside with all cooking done outside in a covered area with a grill and counter space. The restroom is solar powered and is a short distance from the Yurt. Hiking and sight seeing are great summer pastimes.
North End River Pavilion Area:New to the Youth Camp is the North End Pavilion area. This structure is a covered picnic area complete with bathrooms and a large patio that is great for barbecues, picnics, weddings and camping. Enjoy walking around the new ponds and grass area that is located close to the Blacks Fork River. The pavilion area can be utilized for gatherings, eating, and hiking, fishing and watching wildlife.
Other amenities the Youth Camp has to offer
Fishing Preserve: Our fishing preserve or as we like to call it, the "Pond" is a beautiful area complete with picnic tables, hiking trails and a fish food dispenser that takes quarters to feed the many rainbow trout that is stocked in our scenic pond. There is a $5 fee per person per day to use the pond but fishermen don't need a Wyoming Fish and Game license. To fish on the Blacks Fork River campers will need the license.
Rifle Range:Campers or youth groups who would like to practice shooting small caliber rifles or guns can utilize the rifle range. A certified Range Master must be present at all times. Groups who would like to use this facility will have to schedule the Youth Camp Range Master prior to their camp dates unless they have their own range master, but the facility will still have to be scheduled. Please indicate on your confirmation notice if you would like to schedule the rifle range while at the camp.
Canoes:Two trailers with six canoes each complete with paddles and life preservers can be scheduled by campers to use on the pond or at Meeks Cabin Dam at no additional cost. Campers wishing to use them at the Dam will need to have a vehicle with a towing ball to take the canoes there. Caretakers cannot take them to the dam for campers. A release will have to be signed. Please indicate on your confirmation notice if you would like to schedule canoes while at the camp.
