The Ice Rink

During the winter when the ice on the lake freezes enough for skating. Opemikon can provide broomball equipment to use on the rink. Bring your own skates!

The Tobogganing Hill

In the winter, the hill in the cubfield is used for tobogganing. Bring your own sleds!

Snowshoeing

In the winter, your group can rent snowshoes or bring your own for use around camp and for taking hikes. The lake is a great place to snowshoe in the winter!

McManus Rock

Partway between the Cub Field and Eagles Cliff, McManus Rock is another stop on the hike. In the summer, it is used for Rock Climbing.

The Nature Hut

The Nature Hut is an open shelter in the Cub Field. It is usually used by groups that are camping in the Cub Field. It has several picnic tables and a metal counter for crafts, nature, or science sessions.

Parking Lots

The Upper Parking Lot can be found right as you pull into Camp Opemikon off of Hanna Road, next to Brownsea Field. This is where you will drop off campers and park on most occasions.

There is also parking across Hanna Road from the Upper Parking Lot, near the Orchard.

The Lower Parking Lot can be found down the road from the Upper Parking Lot, near Barker Lodge. The Lower Parking Lot is closed to vehicles in the winter months due to slippery conditions on the roadway.

The Rock Wall

In 2013, Opemikon had a Rock Climbing wall installed in the Cub Field as part of the 75th Anniversary Legacy Project. It stands 6 feet tall and offers a great activity for kids.
