The Legend of Camp Miakonda’s “Bloody Mary”
Just outside the quiet town of Sylvania, in Lucas County, sits a beautiful slice of wilderness known as Camp Miakonda.
Thousands of Boy Scouts have passed through its gates over the past 100 or so years and no doubt most of them have all heard the story of Bloody Mary while seated around a roaring bonfire.
As the story goes, a young woman, presumably named Mary, was murdered in a fit of rage by her jealous boyfriend. The attack was so horrendous that he tore her head clean from her body.
The next day, her body was discovered in a shallow grave beneath the camp’s water tower and, now, to this day, Bloody Mary is said to wander the trails and woods in search of her missing head.
