Tuolumne Meadows Campground Comfort Stations – Yosemite National Park CA

Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) constructed the Tuolumne Meadows campground in 1933-34.  It is the largest campground in Yosemite National Park.

The CCC enrollees also built three comfort stations for the campground, done in classic National Park rustic style of boulders and timbers.  At the time, a comfort station was more than a restroom, because it included washing facilities.

The three comfort stations still operate and have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
