The Crooked Lane Learning Center is located on approximately 226 acres of forested land in Mt. Gilead, Ohio, just a short drive from Columbus, Newark and Mansfield. The pond provides opportunities for fishing and canoeing, and labeled hiking trails will help you find your way through the woods and fields. Facilities include Wawinges Lodge, a platform tent unit with a shelter house, two pavilions and an amphitheater. Crooked Lane also features a low-ropes Challenge Course and a Sprayground, which is open for use by camping troops and program participants between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
