Pokagon State Park – Angola IN

Description

The CCC Company 556 established camp at Pokagon from 1934 until 1942.  The CCC men worked on various projects at Pokagon, including a toboggan slide, gatehouse, bath house, saddle barn, and dining hall. To enhance the outdoors experience projects exhibited designs that were rustic and harmonious with their surroundings, using native materials. Pokagon is home to the longest running annual CCC reunion in the country.
