Trout fishing, canoeing and kayaking, and swimming on Bismarck Lake, are key recreational activities. Bob Marshall’s setting, the picturesque Ponderosa pine forest of the southern Black Hills intermingled with aspen and spruce, is an ideal area for bird watching, nature and rock studies. For many who attend, Camp Bob Marshall is the last chance to relax before the school year starts. This event is very family-friendly so feel free to bring your family and have them meet your Ski for Light friends.

The cabins and shower facilities at Bob Marshall are wheelchair accessible. Sleeping bags are recommended for the beds located in the cabins. You are welcome to bring your camper.
