Once the site of a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp (established in 1934). Camp Cook offers 4 campsites that can be reserved singly or as a group. The large, grassy opening of site #4 makes it particularly well-suited for group gathering such as scouts or family reunions. It's proximity to the Fishdam River makes it popular among anglers and the drinking water and toilet are ideal for hunters looking to set up camp for deer season.
