Camping Comes Into Its Own


Author(s):
Abstract:
Western North Carolina became a popular destination for campers during the 1930s. CCC workers constructed and enlarged facilities in both national and state forests. With nearly $4,000,000 invested, the parks were upgraded to include shelters, open-air ovens, garbage cans, fuel, drinking waters, and other accommodations for summertime campers.
