Since 1966 there have been eight full-time rangers that have lived on the reservation year round. These rangers have the herculean task to taking care of the camp property (all 2088 acres) and ensuring the infrastructure is working, that all the animals are fed (even in the dead of winter) as well as making sure all scouts have a safe and fun experience. Since 1966 the following have served as the Camp Rangers:
Julian House
Jerry McDonald
Jasper Steele
Al Robinson
Bill Heinze
Ken Pedersen
John Tolman
Mike Hannah
