Camp Roosevelt is located in Eddington, Maine on Little Fitts Pond and offers several BSA summer camps as well as off-season rentals to scouting units (see its website for more information). It has a large and relatively new dining lodge and campsites with cabins.
Our troop stayed at the Gary Robbins campsite, which was close to the dining hall and waterfront area. Unlike other sites, Gary Robbins has regular restroom facilities with flush toilets and its own showers, and the cabins have electrical outlets. We shared the site with another troop, so I elected to stay in a tent all week as the male adult leader cabin was a bit crowded. (This worked well until it rained hard Thursday night and Friday morning. The upside is that I was able to identify those spots in my tent which I hadn't sealed properly.)
I accompanied my son while he worked on his hiking merit badge, during which we hiked the Fitts Pond Trail (here is the trail map).
Food at the camp is provided by Jeff's Catering. The food was very good and they were very accommodating of special dietary needs (e.g. gluten free).
