Things To Do While At Camp Chowenwaw Park
Aside from the ordinary things we all do when camping, or enjoying the treehouse rentals here are some other things to do that are on-site or close by:
Pawpaw Nature Center
The new Pawpaw Nature Center is now open at Camp Chowenwaw Park, from 10 am – 3 pm. Every day, the park is open. Stop by to learn about habitats and animals found in Clay County.
Historic Girl Scout Museum
The Museum includes a synopsis of the founder of the Girl Scouts, Juliette Low, the history of Girl Scouting in Northeast Florida, and the history of the park when it was a Girl Scout Camp from 1933 to 2005. Special Tours are available on other dates and times by appointment.
Open 9–11 am every third Saturday.
Visit the pollinator garden at the park entrance to learn how to attract and support butterflies and other pollinators at your own home.
The What If Pig Story Walk
Follow along with the book and read it as you navigate the park.
*Book pages are located on the signs near Big Cabin
Visit the Military Museum of North Florida
This is a must for any military enthusiasts. Reynolds Industrial Park is the former Naval Air Station, Green Cove Springs, Benjamin Lee Field. The main training base for the F6F Hellcat fighter, which had over 5000 shoot-downs in WWII.

5 Ideas For Events You Can Host At Treehouse Point
Find me a child that does not want to stay in a treehouse, and I’ll find you a living, breathing pink unicorn. Every kid on the planet dreams of staying in a treehouse. Rent the entire site, and you’ll have all nine treehouse rentals to yourself.
Imagine how cool you will be if you rent the place and host the Superbowl. Everyone will be talking about it for years to come. And, given that Superbowl is in February, it’s perfect weather!
*Note, you will need to bring your TV. And, if you want to go all out, get a projector screen.
Any event for Halloween is a hit with the kids. However, you could stage this place and quickly make it spooky for the kids. You could create all kinds of activities in the woods. It’s pitch black minus the lighting from the restrooms and kitchen. If you turn those lights out, you have the perfect setting for Halloween.
Easter Egg Hunt
Imagine hiding easter eggs across the treehouse camp area and letting the kids run wild. You could keep them entertained for hours collecting easter eggs! And, if you are not into easter egg hunts, do a scavenger hunt. This area is perfect for both.
Host A Wedding
Now, spending the night in a treehouse will not be the right setting for the bride and groom. But the location is a spot for a wedding. And, treehouse for guests will make it one of the most unusual weddings ever!
Rent Big Cabin for the event. The scenery is stunning and worthy of a wedding. The bride and groom can rent one fully equipped cabin for their consummation night! Glamping, if you will!
FYI – Even cabins with full amenities are rustic, but you can make these a love shack with some imagination.
