New York Boy Scout Camp to be Sold Again

Posted on 15 October 2009 by Dan


Camp Toad HollowA portion of a Boy Scout Camp in New York is being sold again. The camp known as Camp Toad Hollow was in operation from the 1920s up until the 1980s when it was sold by Greater Niagara Frontier Council to the Linde Division of Union Carbide Corporation, which planned to use it as a retreat. The current owners, a family bought the property in 1987 to raise their family. Now 55 acres of the property will be placed on the auction block on Saturday, October 24th by Cash Realty & Auctions. You can see the complete auction house listing here.

According to the auction description:

This one of a kind 57.7 acre property features ravines, gorges, rolling hills, and creeks! It looks like Letchworth State Park in your own backyard! Toad Hollow, a former Boyscout camp from the 1920’s – the 1980, features picturesque land that is PERFECT for recreational use! Hunting, camping, fishing, or hiking, you can do it all here! This heavily wooded paradise is located just four miles South of Hamburg but still has access to public water!

The property will initially be offered in two parcels, the first is approximatly 5.5 acres with a cabin, creeks, ravines, and woods. The second is the main parcel, with approximately 52 acres of land, a 3 bedroom house, two cabins, swimming pool, and a gas well. The parcels will be auctioned seperate, and then there will be an auction for all 57 acres. If the price on the complete lot auction is higher than the two previous auctions combined, the winner will take it all.
