Camp Covington is a quaint 23-acre campsite along the Bogue Falaya River about 7 miles northwest of Covington. One of the oldest Girl Scout camps in the United States, Camp Covington is a favorite camping site among Girl Scouts in southeast Louisiana, especially beginning campers. It is open for day use, overnight, and primitive camping.
The camp was redesigned in 2007 to include sunny open spaces for day use and shaded camping grounds for cabins and platform tents, making it ideal for the first-time camper. Each area, whether for day use or overnight camping, provides a fire circle and grill with a nearby latrine.
The entrance to the camp features a gravel parking area and two new ponds. The newly renovated dining hall and kitchen were utilized by our beginners resident camp this past summer, and are available for use by all campers. Campers also enjoy the new archery course, as well as an 18-hole Frisbee golf course (also makes a great place to hike), in addition to a hiking trail around the camp’s perimeter.
