Camp Thompson Rentals



​Rent Camp Thompson for a party, wedding reception, family reunion, special event or work retreat!

Camp Thompson is located in beautiful Pine Grove Furnace State Park in the Michaux State Forest and is just a short drive from Carlisle. Camp Thompson has served our community and others for almost a century with affordable, quality programming. The camp is nestled between Fuller and Laurel lakes and along the historic Appalachian Trail. Camp Thompson is situated on 50 acres of lush forests, flowing creeks and adventurous trails. All of these features make for a great summer destination for field trips, school trips or other group outings.

Our facilities include but are not limited to a pavilion, modern bath house, alpine tower, low ropes course with over 10 elements, archery range, 10 sleep-over cabins, volleyball court, dining hall, full kitchen, fire rings, health center, basketball court, nature and OLS areas. We offer a number of exciting programs to our visitors. Here are just a few of our current offerings: archery (compound bows), canoeing, kayaking (flat water), big group games, swimming, guiding hiking, guided top rope climbing, walking sling shot range, teambuilding, creek walking, OLS and mountain boarding.

Camp staff are all certified American Red Cross lifeguards and professional rescuers and have wilderness training. They are available and ready to help with planning your group’s needs. The high quality of work and training the staff at Camp Thompson engage in has earned us accreditation from the American Camping Association. Not only are we accredited as a camp, but also as a visitor group site and an outside provider of programs and activities for camps and groups.
