Wente Scout Reservation

Comprised of over 2200 acres, Wente is one of the largest Scout Camps on the West Coast. Wente is rich in wildlife and allows for the study of conservation, re-forestation, wildlife management, woodcraft and naturestudy. The tall Douglas Fir, Redwoods,Madrones and golden meadows spell adventure for the Unit that likes to rough it and test their skills. Our private 80-acre lake is a great place for programming including some prime fishin' with many trophy big mouth bass caught by both the expert and novice anglers alike.

If you are looking to swim or offer Aquatics program in our lake, please ensure that you are abiding by all Aquatics Supervision principles including Safe Swim Defense and Safety Afloat. 

Camp fires are permitted, with Ranger Permission, inside the provided fire pits in each campsite.

NO DOGS are permitted at camp. 

Quiet hours are from 10pm-7am, please be respectful of other campers and remain in the areas that you have reserved.

Cleaning Policy Back to Top

In an effort to maintain the cleanliness of our properties, and to also enforce the ownership of "A Scout is Courteous and Clean", we will be enforcing a Cleaning Policy if an area in camp is:

  • Used without being reserved
  • Left in dissaray and not put pack in the correct manner
  • Left with garbage or unclean 

This will result in a charge of double your cost of the initial reservation. To avoid this from occuring, we advise you to check out with the Camp Ranger before your departure, to pack out all of your trash or place in the defined location as reported by the Camp Ranger, and maintain presence in the areas you reserved and not in areas you did not reserve.
