Situated in Hughes County near Holdenville, Oklahoma, Camp Sasakwa is used for primitive, short-term camping only. Camp Sasakwa serves as a low-impact, high adventure opportunity for Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts and Venturers and Sea Scouts.
Water, food, and supplies must be packed in and all refuse packed out. Given the remote nature of this camp, reservations must be coordinated with the Service Center no less than two weeks before your anticipated trip. A local land owner maintains a gate on the road leading to camp. The Service Center maintains the combination to that gate as well as the entrance gate to the camp.
Pack in an adequate water supply, as there is no potable water for many miles. Make sure your troop is well prepared before an outing to Sasakwa.
