Mich. City Mulling Sale Of 626-Acre Camp Dearborn

Camp Dearborn

For 70 years, Camp Dearborn has served as a recreational respite for many Dearborn, Mich., residents.

According to the Press & Guide, the city-owned campground located about 35 miles away in Oakland County might be getting a bit smaller with talk of a potential sale of part of the property.

City officials are considering selling a 40-acre section in Trailer Village 2, the northwest area of the camp that backs up to a residential area in Milford.

Mayor John O’Reilly, Jr. met Sept. 23 with about 150 campers at the site to discuss the possible sale and address their concerns.

“Basically, he indicated his interest to reinvest and provide new infrastructure at the camp,” Recreation & Parks Department Director Gregory Orner said. “The electrical needs to be upgraded, and he has an interest in adding sewer and water services to meet the needs of today’s and future campers.”

Money from the property sale would help offset expenses to make those improvements in other areas of Trailer Village 2. O’Reilly discussed having a professional third-party contractor move trailers in the northwest 40 acres of TV2 to existing and newly developed sites.
