Located about five miles north of Laketown, Rich County, the 30,000-square-foot facility is part of the Bear Lake Aquatics Base on the east side of Bear Lake.
According to Kay Godfrey, council spokesman, the facility is one of the largest buildings in Rich County. He said the new center was also one of the final community projects the late Mormon philanthropist Larry H. Miller worked on.
This multipurpose facility includes a kitchen, serving area, bathrooms, welcome center, offices, first aid center, trading post, storage areas and staff quarters. It also features a scoutmaster's lounge with Wi-Fi access. It will serve thousands of Boy Scouts and their leaders each summer.
