The Four Winds Island Connection to Camp Martin Johnson


Basically the mainline area known as Camp Martin Johnson is no more however that is not exactly the case on 4-Winds Island where many remnants of Camp Martin Johnson still exist. Pictured here are two cottages that remain even to this day that just shout out about times past.

This is one island that I have never visited on Big Bass Lake. I am saddened by this as it would have been extremely interesting to visit. Perhaps some members of Camp Martin Johnson would care to comment about their experiences on 4-Winds Island and even that islands twin. For one, how large was 4-Winds Island and how many structures were on that island. How often did campers visit that island?

Those of us interested in Big Bass Lake and its history would like to know.

One thought on “The Four Winds Island Connection to Camp Martin Johnson

  1. The summer I was old enough to live on the island was my last year at camp. It was for the oldest girls and we lived there for the full 4 weeks. I don’t remember how many structures were on the island. We took a boat or canoe over and back whenever we went anywhere. I do remember a few of us going “skinny dipping” one night and thinking we were so cool but being afraid we would get caught.
