Camp McKee Scout Reservation

Nine hundred acres of forest make up the McKee Scout Reservation, one of the finest Scout camps in the nation. Located on Route 11, just eight miles south of Mt Sterling, KY, this rugged wilderness terrain features both a well-managed forest and a 17 acre lake that offers boating, canoeing, swimming, and fishing. During the summer months, Camp McKee is an established summer camp. Scout troops may come and stay for a week, taking full advantage of the camp’s numerous facilities. A full-time staff is on hand to help Scouts with advancement in various areas. Included are an outdoor skills area, an ecology/conservation area, a developed waterfront program, a handicraft area, archery, rifle, and shotgun ranges, and a special first year camper’s program. Special activities are held each day for the camper’s enjoyment. Campers sleep two to a tent on metal cots with mattresses. The large, air-conditioned dining hall has ample space for a large group of campers.

Troop camping is available not only during the summer, but throughout the entire year. The McKee Scout Reservation contains 13 developed campsites and one cabin that are open for use year-round. The Pioneer Mountain Trail, a 12 mile circular trail, is within the camp’s boundaries.
