Arthur Davidson's primary interest outside of motorcycling was raising prize Guernsey cattle at his farm west of Milwaukee. After World War II, Davidson spent an increasing amount of time on his farm and he became well known for his philanthropy. He was active in and supported the Boy Scouts by establishing a trust fund and donating land for a camp. The land that was formerly Camp Arthur Davidson is now the site of Franklin Woods Nature Center, owned by the city of Franklin. He also donated another camp in 1933, which has since become Brown Deer Park.
