From the old Highway Patrol/driver's license testing place (the small brick building one block south of the last traffic light on Highway 27 in Rockwood), turn east onto Nelson Street. Follow Nelson Street past the elementary school out of town, where it becomes Pumphouse Road. Pass the water treatment plant, then bear left onto Ables Valley Road. Follow Ables Valley Road, then go left at the Buck Tom/Harbour Pointe Marina sign onto Winton Chapel Road. Once on Winton Chapel Road, pass Crystal Cove, then the marina, then pass Eagle Furnace Road, staying on Winton Chapel. (Some people call Winton Chapel Road by the name Rodgers Lane after passing Eagle Furnace Road.) Turn left onto Camp Buck Tom Road (called Camp Bucktom Road on some maps) and continue to follow the Buck Toms/Boy Scout signs to the main building. You can't miss it. See also the Boy Scout maps to the camp.

    Please plan to attend these events and get to know your West Roane County Volunteer Fire Department.
