Our participation in last year's event, organized by this esteemed committee, was a remarkable experience that allowed us to embrace the core values of scouting and shooting sports. Breaking from our tradition of camping at Keowa for the past several years, this time we opted for a change within the same camp, arriving a week earlier to set up at the Lakeside Lean-Tos Site B.

This one of the most popular events of the year, surely a favorite of Troop 23. Normally the entire troop participates.

Nestled along the shores of Crystal Lake, these three lean-tos represent the newest campsite addition at TMR. The Lakeside Lean-Tos stand out for their size, offering ample space that allows even adult campers to comfortably step in, stand up, and move around. Their location right on the water's edge not only guarantees stunning sunrises but also provides hours of entertainment for those who love fishing. 

While the site doesn’t have a local water source, requiring units to bring their own water, its convenience and proximity to Lakeside Tent and Suanhacky Lodge make it an excellent choice for groups in need of additional sleeping accommodations. 

Almost exact location is on the map.

What to bring

It should be relatively warm during the trip so no need to pack a very warm coat. Besides the shooting, this will be a standard camping trip, so bring a tent.
