Dates of existence


Auto camps were once a popular way of vacationing. The Bowen Auto Camp, which opened in 1925, was located in Bowen Park and consisted of approximately eight guest cabins, a caretaker's residence, a communal kitchen and other buildings. The City maintained the camp buildings. However, by the late 1930s, the camp fell into disrepair due to lack of funds and was eventually closed.
