Directions:

     The address is 100 Veterans Memorial Hwy, Smithtown, NY

     The main entrance to Blydenburgh Park is on the North side of Veterans Memorial Hwy (Rte 454), opposite the H. Lee Dennison County Center in Smithtown, approximately 3/4 mile west of the junction of Rtes 454 and 347, and approximately 1 1/4 mile east of the entrance to the Northern State Pkwy.  If you are heading east on Vets Hwy there is a light with a turn signal that you will make a left into the complex. 

     Enter through the main gate and drive straight ahead until you reach a log cabin looking building on your right hand side.  This building is where you can purchase Green Cards.  Make a right at the building and then follow that dirt road to the right.  There will be bathrooms on the left and go a little further and you will see us.

     Look for the “ Cub Scout Pack 329 " banner and it is part of the Family Camping area

     Find a spot where you want to set up or stop and talk to a leader about what spaces are available.
