Explore the camp
Swim, fish, paddleboat, canoe, kayak – anything you can do on the water, you can do here. Fish for bass, northern pike, crappie, bluegill and more. Nordman Lake is a great fishing hole, as you’ll see from the specimens mounted on the walls of the lodge.
Boat around the lake for a wilderness adventure. You may float past a great blue heron or over a magnificent bass. Turtles and frogs abound.
Then, when you’re all tired out from your sport and adventure, build a bonfire on the beach for an evening of stars and fireflies.
Camp Woodbury is located 2.5 miles from Dexter MI and 15 minutes from downtown Ann Arbor.
Feeling energetic? Take a hike. Or get in some steps with volleyball, badminton, croquet or bocce. Of course, if you’re not that energetic, there are always horseshoes, ladder toss, or bean bag toss. But really, isn’t it enough just to sit, sip and sigh on the deck?
Stroll a mile or so over trails mowed for easy walking through forest, fields, and woodland swamps. You may have to jump a creek or two along the way so wear appropriate footwear. And don’t forget the bug spray.
For family guests who travel with their own shell, we are a state-licensed campground and have the designated campsites to prove it. We provide electricity and water at two sites for the hard shell, RV-type camper and have six sites for the soft, pitch-your-own tent camper. All campers are welcome to use the two barrier-free bathrooms in the bath house. Campers should bring their own own towels, just like at summer camp.
It’s a woodsy, welcoming place, this lodge. Shoot some pool, play the piano or the vintage Hammond B3 organ. Break out a great jigsaw puzzle. Pluck a book from the library or cook a feast in the commercial-grade kitchen. Build a fire, sit back in a rocker and just enjoy the space.
It’s yours. All yours.
Originally they housed kids and their counselors, now they sleep 36 in glamping comfort. Five were gutted down to the studs and now are cozy year-round with knotty pine paneling, heating, air-conditioning, comfy beds, and new tiled bathrooms. Four have small kitchens and living rooms. Two are still awaiting transformation.
Kids and counselors used to stand on their bunks to sign the ceilings and walls. We saved them in cabins 4 and 7. See if you can find the oldest one from 1932. Add your own (but don’t write over anyone else’s). Check out all the cabin details.
