A comment was left on a post I had written about the 1955 Woodworth Lake Patch, that the camp had been sold.

There was an article in the Leader Herald which confirmed this:

The Woodworth Lake Scout Reservation, a woodsy retreat where local Boy Scouts have camped for decades, has hosted its final Scout function.

The reservation will be sold, a Scout official said.

Richard Stockton, Scout executive of the Boy Scouts’ Twin Rivers Council, said the 1,200-acre camp has been purchased by a private individual. He would not provide the buyer’s name or the price of the property.

The council says Woodworth Lake no longer is viable as a Scout camp.
