Boxwell Reservation - Old Hickory - Boat Harbor
This collection of photos is from the modern Boxwell Reservation. There have been four Boxwells--one at Linden, TN, one at Narrows of the Harpeth, one at Rock Island, and the current Boxwell on Old Hickory Lake near Laguardo, TN. This Boxwell opened in 1960 and contains several camps: Camp Stalhman, Camp Parnell, Camp Craig, Camp Light, and Gaylord CubWorld. There are also other areas of activity on the reservation, including the Boat Harbor. The Boat Harbor (or Ski Dock) opened with the current Boxwell in 1960. Due to dwindling numbers of Scouts and financial concerns, the Boat Harbor was closed in 1975. During the 1994 capital development campaign, major contributions were made to reopen the Harbor. In 1996, the Boat Harbor reopened and has been operation ever since. Currently, the merit badges of Motorboating, Sailing, and Water Skiing are taught here. The Boat Harbor is located between Camp Stahlman and Gaylord CubWorld on a man-made peninsula to juts out into Old Hickory Lake.
