During the summer of 1935, the Oregonian newspaper announced that among Oregon’s 67 Civilian Conservation Camps that summer one would be located at Shelton State Park in Wheeler County. The 200 member work crew made improvements in the state park along with other tasks associated with CCC workers, such as reforestation work and fire fighting, and road construction.
Shelton Wayside Park is the park’s current name. It is located approximately ten miles southeast of Fossil on Highway 19.
