Altenderfer Lodge

Altenderfer Lodge is steeped in history as the first cabin constructed at the newly opened Sinoquipe Scout Reservation through the financial support of “a friend” in 1948. The cabin was dedicated the same year in memory of Private Willis “Bill” Loose Altenderfer Jr. (1924-1944), an Eagle Scout in the council who was killed in France during World War II. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of members of the local Order of the Arrow Guneukitschik Lodge #317, the cabin was completely renovated and rededicated in 2016.

The cabin comes equipped with electricity (lights and outlets), a food prep area with refrigerator, electric range and stove, bunk cots with mattresses that sleep 16, electric heat and A/C, frost free spigot (20 feet from lodge), outside latrine (200 feet from lodge), and tables and benches.
