Clark Creek Organization Camp

  

This historic group organization camp was constructed during the 1930s by the efforts of the Civilian Conservation Corps in coordination with the U.S. Forest Service. Organization camps were created for the purpose of hosting group recreational activities on public lands. Historically, groups that routinely used organization camps were the Boy Scouts of America and local church groups.

This organization camp features five open-ended structures with platform bunks for sleeping, a large community kitchen shelter with a fireplace and areas for family-style cooking and eating, and an open field for passive or active recreation. Fall Creek is located across Forest Road 18, and Clark Creek runs adjacaent to the sleeping area. Extremely popular for group events and functions, plan well in advance when making  reservations.
