Parker DamThe Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) constructed the dam in the 1930s. A CCC interpretive center is nearby.
3 CCC camps were actively involved in the park’s development from 1933-1942. In addition to repairing the pond and building Parker Dam, the CCC cleared beaches and bought a bathhouse and other bathing facilities. They also carried out extensive reforestation efforts, and built miles of roads, trails and bridges. Some traces of the CCC camps still remain.
