The Manatoc Scout Reservation is the only BSA Scout Camp that is inside the boundaries of a National Park. The Cuyahoga Valley National Park is over 30,000 acres along the Cuyahoga River between Cleveland and Akron, Ohio.

The Manatoc Scout Reservation

contains two camps and is located within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Peninsula, Ohio. Comprising nearly 600 acres the reservation consists of lakes, trails, fields, rustic and improved cabins and campsites allowing for varied uses during the year. 

From September to May our facilities, at Camp Manatoc and Camp Butler, are available for rental. During June, July, and August we operate week long, and week end training and day camp programs at Camp Butler, and week long Summer Camp programs at Camp Manatoc.

About Camp Butler

Camp Butler opened in 1962 to honor Karl Butler, the one who donated the land for the camp. The Council was able to add 150 more acres to the Reservation and built the camp to make room for the growing number of scouts. 

The camp was originally designed for summer patrol-style cooking. Today, Camp Butler is primarily used for summer Cub Scout day camps and Scouts BSA weekend tent camping.
