Welcome Friends!

Planning for our 2017 Summer Season is well underway! Medicine Mountain promises to deliver a program that the whole unit can participate in, youth and adult.

Medicine Mountain Scout Ranch & Adventure Base is a Scouting paradise surrounded by 1.2 million acres of National Forest Service Land. The camp rests like a jewel in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. America’s oldest mountains rose above the surrounding flatlands 60 million years ago, about the time the dinosaurs disappeared. Even after eons of erosion the granite peaks of the Black Hills still soar as high as 7,242 feet to the dizzying heights of Harney Peak. The Lakota Sioux named the area Paha Sapa or Black Hills because a thick forest of pine and spruce trees cover the slopes, making them appear black from a distance.

The Black Hills National Forest offers numerous outdoor adventure opportunities such as hiking, biking and camping amidst stunning scenery. You will find grassy mountain meadows, towering granite peaks, deep canyons, cascading trout streams and clear, clean lakes. Medicine Mountain Scout Ranch & Adventure Base boasts a private fresh water lake stocked with trout, countless miles of local trails for mountain biking and hiking, breathtaking views, rustic serenity, access to local natural-face rock for climbing, and access to both public and non-public caves for spelunking and exploring. Scouts bring and pitch their own tents in forested campsites and dine in the comfort of their troop’s own campsite “patrol style.” The combination of our mild climate and 6,100 foot elevation renders us virtually mosquito free.

Our team is ready and excited to host your unit this upcoming summer in one of the most spectacular and historical areas that our nation has to offer. If your unit would like additional information or has questions, please give us a call at 605-342-2824 or email us at
