Little Sioux Scout Ranch
There's a camp in the Council that's far away
But not too way afar
And nobody knows it but me
Theres 1800 acres of timber
And wild life galore
And nobody knows it but me
There's shelters and a pavillion
And places to see
And nobody knows it but me

The Little Sioux Scout Ranch is approximately one hour north of Omaha, Nebraska in Iowa's Loess Hills. The 1,800 acre ranch is approximately 15 minutes east of Interstate 29 off the Little Sioux exit (#95). Six hiking trails through narrow valleys and over steep hills offer a myriad of views of this pristine, heavily timbered ranch.

Campers have a choice of several mowed meadows, with nearby frost-free water hydrants and latrines or several remote campsites. Four cabin shelters are also available year-round to camping groups. A 15-acre lake is available for boating and fishing. A rifle range was recently added.

In 2000, the expansion of the Mutual of Omaha Administration Building was completed and 2002 marked the renovation of the shower house in north valley and the completion of the MIdAmerican Energy Pavilion. This pavilion can accomodate seating for 300 at picnic tables. We plan to build an additional shower house.

Little Sioux is available for individual pack, troop and post activities, Order of the Arrow conclaves, as well as district and council camporees. During the summer, the ranch will hosts Pohuk Pride, a weeklong Junior Leader Training event; weekend sessions of Fun with Son (a one-day Cub Scout camp with optional overnight camping); and a two-day Cub Resident Camp. During September LSSR hosts a Webelos Sports Camp.
