6/25/2015 - Northwoods Camp Designed To Help Veterans Will Expand - Click here to print this information

The state Natural Resources Board has approved a plan to expand Camp American Legion in a state forest near Lake Tomahawk. The Legion has operated the camp since 1925 on Big Carr Lake and Little Lake Tomahawk as a restoration facility for sick-and-disabled veterans. Superintendent Steve Peterson of the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest says the camp has had a number of leases -- and if it wanted to expand, the state would work with the veterans' group. Peterson says an additional 225 acres will be available for accessible trails and hunting opportunities for veterans and their families. That's in addition to the 300-acres the camp has now. Officials say the extra scenery will give the veterans more solitude, and the Legion is also considering more lodging on the site.
