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 Manatoc

Camp Manatoc opened in 1923 through a combined effort of dedicated Scouters, community leaders, and the generosity of Akron philanthropist Karl Butler who donated more than 400 acres for scouts to use in the Cuyahoga Valley. 

The original entrance to the camp was off present-day Route 303. It was moved in 1932 to its current location when the camp expanded to the southern part of the acreage. Three buildings are still used from that expansion, including the Manatoc Dining Hall which is on the National Registry of Historic places for being one of the largest structures of its size make from extinct wormy chestnut. 

Scouts BSA summer camp is held along with Webelos resident camp, and weekend cabin and tent camping the rest of the year.
