“While on [Casper] mountain, the CCC crews improved camping and picnic grounds, “to make Casper Mountain a heaven on earth for local picnic parties and passing tourists” and also substantial work at Rotary Park part way up the mountain near Garden Creek Falls, constructing fireplaces, picnic tables and benches, and other features.”
Furthermore, the Civil Works Administration (CWA) improved roads and trails at Rotary Park.
