Buildings - Camps

Seasons, Buildings, Dwellings, Woody Plants, Trees The Cy Wedge Jr. Camp at Otter Lake. At one time this little cabin was directly on the Otter Lake shore. It was constructed about 35 years ago by John Skoog of Hancock. He expected to make the cabin a sort of summer cottage but because of the gradual receding of the lake he lost interest in it and deeded it over to his daughter, Mrs. Cy Wedge, Jr., who, with her husband, uses it during the summer. Today, the camp is about a half mile from the lake shore. [Photo of a building with a screened in porch. The porch has a swing and several chairs. The roof appears to be of tar paper and the steps leading to the porch look like they are in need of repair.].

This trailer was parked not far from Alberta, near LAnse, Saturday. The five using it were not around, no doubt because they were after their quarry on an old logging road on which they parked the trailer. The occupants were indicated by the camp certificate as being Charles and Minnie Goodsell of Sheridan, and Lewis, Lyle and Elsie Palmer of Mason, both Lower Michigan towns. Several tents and trailers were parked between LAnse and Three Lakes. [A small trailer complete with curtains is parked on a muddy road. Some groceries sit on the top of the trailer.]
