On December 30, 2008, St. Clair County purchased the 44.5 acre Camp Woodsong site from the Michigan Waterways Council of the Girl Scouts of America. The property is located off of Abbottsford Road at the east end of Rynn Road in Clyde Township.
St. Clair County purchased the property for $400,000 using a Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund grant. Under the grant, the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund will reimburse St. Clair County for 64% of the purchase price and eligible costs. St. Clair County Parks and Recreation millage funds were used to fund the balance of the purchase costs.
The western half of the property features existing buildings that include a garage, small activity building, two vault toilets and group camping areas. The eastern half of the property has scenic, steep slopes that travel down to 2,800 ft of Black River shoreline.
The preservation and acquisition of land for outdoor recreational use is the highest priority in the County Master Recreation Plan. The purchase of Camp Woodsong will preserve it for continued use of outdoor recreation including nature study, hiking, biking, and water activities such as canoe, kayak and fishing access to the Black River.
