The Black Warrior Council has three wonderful camping facilities, each unique in their own way, for use by the youth and adults we serve. Scouting units from out-of-council are welcome to come and enjoy our camps. Outside groups may also request use of our facilities but there are additional insurance and indemnity requirements that must be met.

White Bluff Scout Reservation

The White Bluff Scout Reservation is located just off of Highway No. 43 north of Demopolis.  White Bluff Scout Reservation is our second primitive camp and is available for use most of the year by all Scout units. The facilities include a large pavilion and boat landing.

January 11, 2024: Due to several dangerous trees identified at White Bluff Scout Reservation, that property is currently CLOSED. We are working to get those trees removed and as soon as that occurs, we will reopen the property. Thanks for your understanding.
