Pfeffer Scout Reservation


Pfeffer Scout Reservation is located on 400 acres of Kentucky Lake in Western Kentucky and only a day’s drive to the large metropolitan areas of St. Louis, Memphis, Louisville, and Nashville.

It is truly in “America’s Heartland.” The property includes beautiful lakeside views at every turn. Shooting Sports are paramount at PSR where your youth can enjoy use of shotguns, .22 rifles, and archery.

Pfeffer Scout Reservation is also home to Aquabase, mid-America’s premier sailing program on beautiful Kentucky Lake. Covering 160,300 acres, this exciting program provides twenty-five foot Catalina sailboats and spend an adventure together for a week! In addition to Aquabase, motorboating, small boat sailing, swimming, and rowing can also be undertaken at the Waterfront.
