McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park – Burney CA

Description

The men from Camp Castle Crags worked here seasonally, from May to October, 1934-1937.

They cleaned up the park and the shore of Lake Britton, built a fire break around the park, and a campground on the east side of the gorge with tables, stoves, cupboards, comfort stations, and a water and sanitary system.

They remodeled an existing park custodian residence, and built a road from the park headquarters to the fish hatchery. They installed telephone lines underground, and built a split-rail perimeter fence and a main park entrace- with a redwood arch and decorative stone masonry.
