Camp Marin Sierra features 320 acres in the Tahoe National Forest at an elevation of approximately 5,500 feet. Chubb Lake provides the camp with virtually all the aquatic programs Scouting has to offer except motor boating and waterskiing. A notable point about Chubb Lake is that it is approximately 30 feet deep in the middle and therefore one of the warmest lakes in the Sierras. The camp has 14 troop campsites of various sizes with tent platforms and centrally located outhouses, running water, and wood-burning/boiler showers.


For over 67 years, Camp Marin Sierra has been offering Scouts and leaders a wonderful camping experience. Whether it be swimming in warm Chubb Lake, shooting at one of the ranges, learning new Scout skills in Trail to First Class, or traversing the high events in COPE, we are confident your Scouts and leaders will have an excellent time with us.

With fourteen beautiful campsites, there is one for troops of many different sizes. Chubb Lake offers thirteen acres of a wide variety of aquatic activities, including sailing, kayaking, canoeing, rowing, swimming, and snorkeling. Large granite hills provide fantastic views, excellent hiking, and exciting climbing and rappelling opportunities.

A fully-accredited camp by the Boy Scouts of America, Marin Sierra has programs for all ages. there is Trail to First Class and appropriate merit badges for new Scouts, over 50 merit badges total offered to everyone, campwide activities for all ages, older Scout programs such as COPE, climbing, mountain biking, and Trail to Eagle type merit badges.

This camp features both central feeding (most meals at commissary) and jamboree-style feeding (most meals cooked in your campsite with us delivering food to you). Opportunities are given for troops to interact with each other as well as to have some time alone.
