Council

If you are looking for an opportunity to do Outpost -style camping for your summer resident camp experience, we have just the thing for you with this beautiful site. Wide open spaces, lots of room, and its own entrance make this site a real favorite for off-season and summer resident campers alike. Pioneer sits on a bluff across the road from the main camp and is definitely off on it's own. Yet it isn't so far from the main camp that you can't be part of all the great things that make Goose Pond what it's famous for. You get the best of both worlds at Pioneer - on your own and able to participate in all the programs the Pond offers when you want them.

Site capacity: For large sized units or several smaller units camping together
Special Features: Grassy center with nicely shaded woods on edges
Latrine type: Classic-style pit latrines
