Camp Potomac

Camp Potomac River Base (CPRB) is a unique opportunity to explore a peaceful float along the Potomac River.

CPRB will provide several options for trips lasting various times with in two different states Maryland and West Virginia. Scout units must do safety afloat training prior to the canoe trip. Units must have vehicles with a 2-inch ball hitch capable of towing a canoe trailer. All canoe trip equipment is provided. You simply stay overnight at Camp Potomac and in the morning, hook up the canoes and be on your way. Meet with Camp Potomac Ranger Andy and take the paddles, lifejackets and trip information. All documented trips are within 5 to 20 minutes from Camp Potomac and will last 2 to 8 hours depending on your float to paddle ratio.

Another option that we offer is to provide a packed lunch from a nearby store. You can purchase lunch online for $6 when you make your reservation. Scout leaders can pick lunches up the night before or the morning of your trip. Don’t forget to leave a copy of your BSA Tour Permit with Ranger Andy.
