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.
