Group Camping Opportunities

At Beavermead Campground, we have one large serviced group campsite, one smaller unserviced campsite and the ability to set aside other campsites to accommodate group campers. These sites are great for Scouts, Guides, Cadets and similar groups as well as school camping trips. We can also make this offer available to other large groups.

Any legally registered organization is eligible to book a site. The group must be led by a designated leader who has legal authority for the group. Use of alcohol is not permitted. Campsite fees are $7.00 per person per night and a minimum of $42.00 per group per night.
