Aerial of the Former Camp Martin Johnson

It’s now hard to imagine but once this property you see here belonged to Camp Martin Johnson, which bordered on three lakes, those being Big and Little Bass Lake plus Bluegill Lake.  All are now part of the Heritage Bay Development  with only a few remnants left of camp such as the basketball and tennis courts.  A huge boulder sits atop the gravesite of camp founder, Martin Johnson, however the plaque honoring his name has long since been removed.  Just to the left of this camp is the now privately owned Four Winds Island which was also once a part of the camp.

If you want to learn more about Camp Martin Johnson you can read the page of its history at the top of the page or connect with the category Camp Martin Johnson on the sidebar.  The legacy that Martin Johnson envisioned for countless boys and girls has now become a high-priced zone for homes.  I can almost imagine a large sigh coming from the direction of heaven in that regard.
