of Tanah Keeta Scout Reservation.
Tanah Keeta Scout Reservation is located near Tequesta in Martin County and includes 640 acres along the south edge of Jonathan Dickenson State Park and on the Loxahatchee River – a State of Florida Historic Trail. Deeded to the Council in 1953 the property is heavily forested with slash pines and is home to the Council Summer Camp program and the Order of the Arrow, Aal-Pa-Tah Lodge. The reservation is split into Camp Loxahatchee with numerous facilities, Camp Clear Lake with bathhouses only, and several primitive wilderness sites.
In addition to the many facilities, "TK" also has a beautiful 5.2 mile Mike Machek Trail. It's guided in the heart of "TK" designed to give hikers a taste of solitude in the wilderness. Please preview the trail experience in Mike Machek Trail Handbook.
