Camp Blackhawk lies on the shores of Big Blue Lake and is rich in tradition, with roots dating back to the early days of Scouting.  So many generations of Scouting footprints have traversed the trails of Blackhawk, that these paths have become firmly embedded in the landscape surrounding Big Blue. 

Blackhawk with its long standing traditions, also has a newer flair with its modern dining hall filled three times a day with Owasippe’s genuine hospitality.

The campsites, whether they be up on the hill overlooking the lake or scattered through the woods are never far from Big Blue.  The sites have modern amenities, flush toilets and a shower.  Wall tents, set up on platforms with two cots, make up the accommodations.

Down the beach just a short distance from the waterfront, is the Fossett Sailing Base.  This outpost is available to campers across the reservation.  Besides Sailing, Motor Boating and Water Sports are offered here.
