CCC Camp Smokey, Roaring River State Park – Cassville MO

Description

CCC Company 1713 established Camp Smokey in Roaring River State Park in the 1930s and used it as a base from which to make extensive improvements throughout the area. The large CCC camp itself  is still remarkably well-preserved. The camp is within the state park, but it is well-defined as its own area, Camp Smokey.  The buildings are still used at this time.

  1. Hello I was wondering if you guys had a phone number I may use to cnotact you guys?

  2. I went to this camp as a 4H camp back in the mid-1970s. They called me ‘Corporal’ because I wore an Army Jacket with Corporal Stripes on it. It was a Great Time.
