The Youth Group Area is for Youth groups - a group of youngsters (generally 16 years of age or less although high school sponsored groups may include youth up to 18) who are members of a youth focused organization, camping with adequate adult leadership. A youth/adult ratio of 4/1 may be used to determine eligibility as a youth group.
The area has two, adjoining rustic sites with a total combined capacity of 50 people. Each site has picnic tables and a fire ring. There is a common water fountain with spigot and two vault toilets.
Reservations may be made up to 6 months in advance of arrival by calling Van Buren State Park at 269-637-2788.
