Raven Knob's thirty-six campsites are grouped into three areas: the Ridge, the Hill, and the Valley.

The Ridge has a mix of Adirondack and tent campsites, each named for a different frontiersman or other historical figure. These sites are known for being only a short walk to the dining hall, and most have electricity available in their permanent shelters. 

Ridge campsites include: Buffalo Bill A, Buffalo Bill BCrazy Horse A, Crazy Horse BCochiseDan Beard, Dan Boone, Davy Crockett, GeronimoKit Carson, Sam Houston, SequoiaSeton, Sitting Bull, and Wyatt Earp.

The Hill contains exclusively tent campsites, each named for geographical features in the area. All sites have a permanent picnic shelter. Many border Lake Sobotta and are generally quiet and peaceful due to their secluded location.

Hill Campsites include: Deer Valley A, Deer Valley B, Hilltop, Knob View, Knoll, Laurel Ridge, Piney Ridge A, Piney Ridge B, Piney Ridge CRed Oak, Trails End A, and Trails End B

The Valley contains exclusively tent campsites, each named for various Native American tribes. Most sites have a permanent picnic shelter. Four campsites are located just beyond the Nature area and five are along the road behind the Lodge Building. Several marked trails provide Scouts with quick access to the main program areas in camp.

Valley Campsites include: Apache, Arapaho, Cherokee, CommancheIroquois, Kiowa, Lakota, Ponca, and Shawnee.
