Operated under special permit with the Caribou-Targhee National Forest

The benefits to the targeted populations we serve are found in Camp Taylor’s unique natural settings and resulting opportunities to experience that environment at an individuals own pace.

We do not provide structured programs: instead we offer a wilderness environment in which other agencies and organizations can provide their programs and services. This allows them to focus on their programs ( their core business) in a natural environment conducive to growth and learning ( our core business).

Many individuals and groups in our area do not have the opportunity to explore nature in a setting that is convenient and affordable. Camp Taylor’s facilities include a Lodge with seating for >100 and cooking facilities, 9 cabins, a shower facility, and outdoor recreation areas which include both organized and natural settings. Camp Taylor encourages usage by a wide variety of targeted populations, including scouting, youth groups, church organizations and special focus organizations that can benefit from our facilities. Camp Taylor is located a short distance from Pocatello and other Southeast Idaho communities , which allows organizations to use our facilities without traveling long distances. Camp Taylor offers preferential rates and reservations to those in our targeted population : beyond this, we encourage use of our facilities by any one who can benefit from what we offer.

Camp Taylor provides natural settings that allow guests to learn about themselves by experiencing an environment which they may not realize exists by any other means. Our buildings provide handicap accessible facilities including 3 cabins equipped for year round use. We are located in the Caribou National Forest, about 12 mile s from Pocatello. Access to Camp Taylor is via Bannock County and U.S. Forest service roads. Winter access requires use of either snowmobiles or cross country skis.
