Here are two pictures of Camp Martin Johnson on Big Bass Lake in different era’s of time. In the black and white shot you can observe Grandma’s Hat Island somewhat easier in the background than in the color photograph. The black and white picture is from the camp in its heyday whereas the color photograph would be as it would be seen today.
I have often said how difficult it would be for former campers and staff to see it as it is today and the same would go for me and my family of our former property. Each has been built upon with large homes and with the old buildings scrapped living only in our memories now. Yet it is the kids that have suffered the most. Big Bass Lake should have a resident camp on it even now to share in the lakes history and recreational potential.
If former campers or counselors are reading this post, you might want to describe your memories of these photgraphs by way of a comment.
