Ocqueoc Outdoor Center


Presque Isle County acquired this 18-acre site in April 2004 from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources when the agency was considering demolition of the buildings. The site, located on Ocqueoc Lake and Ocqueoc River, was deeded to the County with a reverter clause stating that the facility would be used for recreational purposes or be returned to the State of Michigan. The facility was first built and used as a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp during President Franklin Roosevelt’s time in office. During that time it was called “The Black Lake Camp.”
