Camp Lady of the Lake: Update

Published by at 12:22 am under Hiking: Monroe

Camp Lady of the Lake was once a camp and orphanage run by the Diocese of Toledo along the shore of Lake Erie just to the south of Luna Pier.  The camp is defunct and the area is now dominated aesthetically by the Whiting power plant run by Consumers Energy.  During the past year or so, the property has become a part of the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge.

For years, the property was open in a de facto fashion to walkers and those who love to fish.  During that time, I hiked the shoreline sections of the property and posted a hike report.  Since then, the property has been closed to public access.


That report became a meeting place of sorts for those running Google searches for information about the camp.  So, now there are twenty-one comments from past campers and residents.  A writer from the Diocese of Toledo also responded to the post.  Her paper, the Catholic Chronicle, published two recent stories related to Camp Lady of the Lake.

    I was there for six years. From 1939 to 1945. We never heard it was haunted. The cabins were built during that time. A fun place to be in the summer from St. Anthony’s Orphanage in Toledo, Ohio
