The Donald Patti Gazebo was dedicated in 1995. It was built by members of Boy Scout Troop 33 of Takoma Park, Maryland, in honor of Donald Patti, Scoutmaster of the troop from 1973 to 1978 and again from 1980 to 1994. "May the Great Scoutmaster of all good scouts be with us until we meet again."

The porch on Spangenberger Lodge is known as Lowell's Lookout. It was built in 1987 in memory of Lowell Gayman, who was active in Troop 33 from 1971 to 1986.

The campsites are known as the Wolves' Den, Sleepy Hollow, Woodchuck, and The Pit.
