Camp Chowenwaw Park is a 150acre site that the Girl Scouts of America operated,for more than 70 years before deciding to relocate. The property has 100 acres of wetlands and 50 acres of uplands, and is located right at the mouth of Black Creek. This beautiful site contains a predominantly undisturbed upland and wetland natural environment.. Camp Chowenwaw Park is located on 1.5 miles of shoreline on Black Creek and Peters Creek and provides a habitat for many water birds. The aquatic vegetation provides foraging areas for the St. Johns River manatees as well as an ideal habitat for many fish species. Turkeys, raccoons, bald eagles, river otters, white tailed deer, alligators, foxes, migrating songbirds, as well as frogs, lizards, snakes, and turtles are just a few of the wildlife that can be encountered here.
