The SoMo Royal Rangers maintain a permanent campgrounds at the Stevens Addition of the Cross Point Retreat Center, the campgrounds for the Southern Missouri District Assemblies of God. This camp serves as the site for several district events each year, including Pow-Wow, Frontier Adventure, and our junior training academy.

CAMPFIRES

Open campfires are allowed in all designated camping areas of our campground, provided current Royal Rangers fire safety practices are followed.  All campfires must be contained within or on a fire pit, fire pan, or fire mound with water nearby to extinguish the flames.  Please refer to the current Royal Rangers Fire Craft merit for details.

TRANSPORTING FIREWOOD

Due to the potential of spreading tree-killing insects or diseases, all campers are asked to follow current Missouri state guidelines when transporting firewood to or from our campgrounds.  The following is a brief summary of current regulations, which apply to all seasons and all types and conditions of firewood.  Full details can be found on the Missouri Department of Conservation website at these locations:  Don’t Move Firewood and Firewood Q&A.

  1. Firewood found at the camp or purchased in the local area is your best source for firewood.  Our campground has a signficicant amount of forest where naturaly downed firewood can commonly be found.  While we ask that all live trees be protected, all dead or downed wood found at the camp is available for your use while camping here.
  2. Firewood CAN be moved to and from any location within Missouri.  However, it is recommended that it not be moved more than 50 miles from where it was originally cut.  Current state regularions prohibit transporting firewood into Missouri from other states.
  3. Pre-packaged, heat-treated firewood labeled with the USDA shield is safe to move to and from anywhere in the USA.  This wood can commonly be found at many home improvement stores.
