Donna May Campbell Preserve is located in northern Darke County, just off of US-127, in Beamsville. Opened in 2012, a small parking lot allows access to this 5-acre riparian habitat along the State Scenice Stillwater River.
As you enjoy the short footpath through this park, you will encounter silver maple, box elder and American sycamore trees which all provide an island of habitat for wildlife species who call river banks home. Some of this wildlife includes beaver, songbirds, fox, a variety of reptiles and amphibians, muskrat and many other species. Be sure to keep an eye out for beaver chews and trees downed due to beaver activity.
There are thoughts and future plans to consturct a simple canoe/kayak launch ramp so that visitors may use this site to paddle the Stillwater River's headwaters.
