Camp History
Purchased around 1960 by Elder LaVern Pomeroy, then Superintendent of Michigan Conference's Upper Peninsula Churches of District 1, the property was sold a few years later to the Michigan Conference at cost. A hotel on an island in Lake Superior was dismantled, transported to Sagola, and reconstructed as a lodge. Camp Sagola serves as the Upper Peninsula center for youth camps, the U.P. campmeeting, and other U.P. events. The camp is now open year-round. Current lodge capacity is about 200 people in the meeting room, however, a large auditorium with a 400 person capacity has been recently constructed.

Information on Property and Camp Facilities
The camp is located north and west of Iron Mountain, Michigan, about three miles west of Sagola on Route 69 going toward Crystal Falls. There is a small yellow sign at the entrance. A road takes you through a farmer's field for about 3/10 mile to the camp lodge parking lot. There are eleven cabins with heat and electricity. There are 12 camper sites with electricity but no sewer facilities.
Tent sites are also available. The lodge has a full basement with a fireplace and one large and one small meeting room. There are five boys' showers and five girls' showers in the basement; two bathrooms upstairs, also three small meeting rooms, one large room with a fireplace, and a kitchen upstairs. There is now a new, centralized bath house to expand the bathroom and shower facilities. A new dock and boat house along with beach improvements have upgraded the lake front. There is also a large auditorium that seats approximately 400. A new nature center will be underway in the near future.
