and electric camping sites as well as shower and bathroom facilities

located near the front of the park. Attendees should also familiarize

Barnwell Mountain Recreational Area

6284 State Highway 155 N   Gilmer, TX 75645




From Gilmer, TX, turn east onto State Highway 155 North (this is a stoplight). Go approximately 5 miles; as you start to climb a hill, look for a green sign on the left that points to the right reading "Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area". Be sure to watch for the turnoff because it is at the crest of the hill. You will miss it if you are not paying attention. This sign is directly across the highway from the entrance. Turn right, check-in at the gate, and proceed up the hill to the office where you will finish the check-in process.




SCARR Lodging



Camp Mabey is the main campsite for SCARR. Follow the signs back to the camp - it’s
about a 10-minute drive. Old Camp will be another established campsite
where the Fun Zone will reside for the week. There are several other areas
and campsites scattered around the park that attendees are welcome to take
advantage of. Whatever campsite you choose to use, please be respectful and
make sure to leave it cleaner than you found it.
