Traveling north on 23 from I-270, it is impossible to turn left into CMO. You will need to go north to the next traffic light, turn left and follow a detour that takes you back to 23 South. Once you’re back on 23, heading south, the entrance to CMO will be on your right. The entrance is a big gravel area that might be easily missed. There is a sign that says “camp entrance” (or something to that effect). Once on CMO grounds, please follow “Rotary”signs
