Chief Logan Reservation
Chief Logan Reservation is nestled among the rolling hills of southeastern Ohio, about
twenty miles southeast of Chillicothe and five miles north of Route 35. Our valley is
located at the end of a long winding road cut through a beautiful hardwood forest. This
picturesque natural bowl is framed by ridges where Simon Kenton and other frontiersmen
walked and boasts over two hundred and fifty acres of natural wonders. On your left as you
enter the camp is Sproat Lake, a beautiful, spring-fed twelve acre lake that is perfect
for boating and swimming. There is also a beaver pond that supports a variety of roaming
wildlife and a gorgeous wetland plant life, including willows, waterlillies, and bald
cypress trees. The adjoining land, owned by Mead Paper Company, provides many additional
square miles of wilderness.
Amid this natural beauty is a unique Boy Scouts of America summer camp program
to troops interested in mastering scouting skills in a flexible and friendly environment.
The staff is always highly trained and experienced and returns year after year to see
their old friends and make new ones. All campsites and facilities are located in the
valley, leaving the ridges for outpost camping and high adventure activities. All meals
are served in Mead Lodge, although upon request patrol cooking is available.
