WENATCHEE — Three Boy Scouts land parcels just west of Squilchuck State Park could be up for sale, spelling trouble for the Scout-A-Vista property that Wenatchee Scouts know well.

Located at 3275 Mission Ridge Road, the Scout-A-Vista campground isn’t owned by Boy Scouts of America or the Grand Columbia Council, which operates throughout North Central Washington. Instead, it’s owned by Friends of Scout-A-Vista, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that bought the property from the Grand Columbia Council in 2012 to prevent it from being developed.
