FCP History - The Old Lean-Tos

Postby CampADK » Tue Aug 28, 2007 6:33 pm

Back in the 1920's when Fish Creek was run as a CCC Camp (Civilan Conservation Corps),
the campground consisted of open camp lean-tos and fire rings. Here are several shots of these

Fish Creek campers have come a long way since the 1920's :lol:
