background on our location

The locals refer to Camp Dixie as "Page's Lake", as they knew it back in the mid-1900's before it became Camp Dixie in 1967.  This brief presentation will give you a bit of background on our location as gleaned from Bladen County Agricultural maps from the late 1800's and from a series of colorized postcards published between 1925-1945.
