Phillippo Scout Reservation

Cannon Falls, MN


Only five miles west of Cannon Falls, Phillippo Scout Reservation and its 498 acres of rolling fields, wooded campsites and hills overlook the beautiful Cannon River Valley. With easy access to both the Cannon River and Cannon Valley Bike Trail the site is an ideal launching point for a long distance trip. Since its opening in 1964, the site has proved an ideal host for events of all sizes. The property is even conveniently divided into an upper and lower level so that two large events can occur simultaneously without issue. If you like cool views, don’t forget to visit the picturesque Friendship Point overlook on your next visit.

Originally named Cannon River Scout Reservation, Phillippo Scout Reservation was rededicated in 2000 to honor Ron Phillippo’s long tenure as a past Scouting CEO.
