Camp Richard Clark

Camp Richard Clark is 110 acres located in Clark County, KY. Perhaps the most historic of all the Council’s camp properties, Camp Richard Clark is located where, in the 1850’s, a grand hotel with mineral springs operated as a health spa that attracted many patrons from all over the nation. Its history; seclusion and pleasantly unusual terrain make this site an interesting place to visit. Overnight capacity is up to 200; limited by restroom facilities.
