Camp Wolverine is an Owasippe Scout Reservation camp located on 4,800 acres of wilderness totally within the Cleveland Creek watershed. The creek is a tributary of the White River, and is completely surrounded by Owasippe's boundaries. A dam on the creek forms the lake where Camp Wolverine is located.

The camp has 25 sites with facilities that include hot water showers, wash stands, and flush toilets. The site locations are conducive to camping using the patrol method.
Each meal is brought to your site hot and ready to serve in Patrol fashion. This allows Scouts more time to enjoy this beautiful camp.
