Tucked away on the back side of Glenwood Park is another one of Heaven's best kept secrets. In the late '30's 4-H'ers in the Mercer County area decided to build an entire campground made only out of logs from the surrounding area. The result became a gorgeous, tucked-away campground next to the lake with plenty of room to accomodate nearly anyone. The camp consists of two dormatories, two bath houses, a cafeteria, a meeting hall, and a 'counselor's' cottage in a serene, private setting. It is surrounded by trees and open fields and provides a beautiful, panoramic view of the lake. It's features include: a ball field; a huge open field for soccer; a vesper knoll or campfire site and access to the lake. (There's even talk about putting in a ropes course!)
This is the perfect spot for a corporate retreat, in-service training, convention or seminar. Your guests will enjoy the rustic, natural setting which will help to build comaradarie and facilitate teamwork. Planning a workshop? What better spot than a country setting in a tranquil, natural environment with limited interruptions? You can feature outdoor sessions, intimate nature walks and time for tranquil solitude. Or, if your group is more active, you may include fishing, canoeing, hiking, volleyball or mountain biking in your brochure.
Glenwood Park provides the perfect setting for training in outdoor recreation or forestry. All types of wildlife make the park their home, which provides ample opportunity for studying tracks, signs and habitat. Archery practice could also be arranged through the superintendent (no firearms allowed). Paramilitary and law enforcement groups would benefit tremendously from the camp's surroundings as well.
Looking for a unique setting for a wedding or reception? You can have pictures made at our new gazebo! How about a family, club or class reunion? The area is served by Mercer County Airport and has easy access to Interstate 77 and Highway 460. Prices are reasonable and you may contact the superintendent to make a reservation.
