Dry Valley CCC camp - Monticello UT
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) established a camp 23 miles north of Monticello in San Juan County, in the southeast corner of Utah. CCC teams worked around Dry Valley, Indian Creek, Blanding, Monticello and La Sal, building fences and corrals; flood control and erosion works, including reseeding, revegetation and cultivation; telephone lines; and campgrounds. The CCC men also built the road through the Abajo Mountains from Monticello to Blanding.
Nothing remains of the camp except ruins of the camp gate, building foundations, the access road and an old Pontiac — all of which are well documented by Mary Cokenour on her blog site (below).
