Welcome to the Lake of the Ozarks Scout Reservation, the premier Scout camp in the midwest. Located on the Lake of the Ozarks Osage Arm at mile marker 44 near Laurie, Missouri, amid spectacular natural beauty and extreme rocky terrain, the Lake of the Ozarks Scout Reservation boasts 450 acres and a mile and one-half of shoreline. Just one hour south of Jefferson City, Missouri, the Lake of the Ozarks Scout Reservation is the camping home of the Great Rivers Council, featuring Camp Hohn – our over 50 year-old Scouts BSA camp. Hohn plays host to our Scouts BSA Summer Camp program, Project C.O.P.E., Climbing, and Sail Master program, thirteen scenic campsites for year-round use, and the Sinquefield Invention Campus.
