On majestic Lake Crescent, order Camp David Jr. provides a beautiful setting for all types of group activities, focusing on youth groups. The grounds of the oldest county park in the state are beautifully maintained. The camp is rich in history since it was originally a health spa in the very early 1900’s and much of the history is preserved on the site. Camp David Jr. has been maintained as an outdoor recreation camp since 1935.
Sitting on the veranda of the lodge overlooking the lake, you can easily imagine what it must have been like 100 years ago, when the sites original use was that of a health spa.
