Big Foot Wilderness Camp

One of our Council’s hidden treasures is Big Foot Wilderness Camp, located in the Green Swamp east of Dade City. It is situated in a 30,000 acre wilderness preserve owned by the State of Florida–Southwest Florida Water Management District. The facility has a 1,200 square foot cabin, with lights and indoor plumbing, two wood stoves for heating, an outdoor shower for Scout use, a troop campfire area, and patrol campsites.  There’s a 5-mile loop trail starting and ending at the cabin, which is perfect for completion of a second class 5-mile hike requirement.  This loop intersects with a portion of the Florida National Scenic Trail extending approximately 25 miles in a northerly direction and 10 miles in a southerly direction.  Big Foot Camp offers a great camping and hiking experience in a rustic wilderness setting.

Note - Big Foot Wilderness Camp is only available to one unit at a time and is subject to blackout dates due to hunting season.  Reservations for Big Foot can only be taken after the hunting season blackout dates are set, so any reservation made more that 3 months out is not confirmed and is subject to being canceled or moved.
