Set in the valley between the mountains, this compact, yet functional facility has all the amenities necessary for a terrific personal retreat, corporate retreat, or continued use as a camp facility. Curry Run creek, which is a trout stream, flows through this beautiful property, helping to create the lovely 4 acre pond on the property that is stocked with bass.

Adjacent to the home site is the maintenance shop. The shop has 3 overhead doors for ease of equipment entry and exit. The building is not insulated but does have natural gas heating.

The next building is the Jackie Schoch Lodge. This very aesthetically pleasing, 3,360 sf lodge has a capacity of 20 overnight users and blends well into the surrounding landscape.. The main floor consists of a full kitchen, large, open floor concept meeting and sleeping area and a shower stall and bathroom. There is a wood burning stove that complements the baseboard heating system. The full length covered porch on the front of the building is a great place to relive the memories of current and past camping experiences. The lower level was used by the Scouts as an inside BB and pellet gun rifle range, but certainly has a multitude of other uses since it is heated space. There is a half bath on the lower level.
The Recreation Hall is a stick-built, 2,313 sf building used for both programs and overnight camping. It has a capacity of 40 overnight users, with a kitchen, 4 showers, 3 restrooms and a fireplace. The heat is supplemented by forced air natural gas. Walls are not insulated but the ceiling is.
The Environmental Center is also a stick-built, 860 sf structure that has been used as a nature center and educational facility. There are no overnight facilities in this building, though it would be easy to add them. It has 4 separate rooms that could easily be anything from office space to bedroom space. It has a half bath, natural gas heat, and also blends well with the landscape.
Everyone’s favorite facility is the Dining Hall. This 2,720 sf building is used for both dining and overnight camping. With a capacity of 40 guests, there are plenty of mouths to feed which can easily be accommodated in the commercial kitchen. Natural gas and electric power all that is necessary to feed the hungry masses. As an added quality feature, there are 2 stone fireplaces in the Hall, one at each end that add the additional warmth and charm to the tongue and groove interior walls and open ceiling. There is a restroom here as well.
All main buildings are ADA accessible.
The primary focal point to the property is the lovely 4 acre pond and pavilion area. The 50 x 24 pavilion has electric and a hydrant well at the structure. The pond has bass, catfish and sunfish as the primary species, all in abundance. Adjacent to the pond is the Boat House. This is a storage building with electric that is used as both workshop and boat storage area for canoes and kayaks. The secondary focal point is the in-ground pool. The pool area is fenced and has a full pumphouse attached in support of all the pool needs.
For the more primitive style of camping, this facility boasts multiple tenting sites. The Seneca Tent Unit has room for 32 campers in 3 adirondack shelters and 5 tent platforms. A pavilion and restroom/shower facility is located here also. The Mohawk Unit has capacity for 24 overnight guests in 4 adirondack shelters and 2 tent platforms, also with its own pavilion.
