Camp Scott Wetlands

Fort Wayne City Utilities has created a wetland area on the City's southeast side to store and treat stormwater runoff.  Stormwater from several neighborhoods around McMillen Park goes to a massive storage tank at the park and is then pumped to the wetlands.  The wetlands also provides a natural habitat for song birds, water birds and other animals. Camp Scott is located at 3615 Oxford Street.  Get Map
