NAUVOO - One of Winston County’s secluded spots is at Camp McDowell, on Clear Creek near the Walker County line. It was purchased by the Alabama Diocese in 1946 and made into the camp it is today. A multi-faceted facility brimming with stunning architecture, one of the highlights has become known as Alabama’s first nature pre-school: Magnolia Nature School at Camp McDowell.
