A Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp was established west of the Baker-Barry tunnel on the Marin Headlands, probably in 1934.
Enrollees from this camp built the Baker-Barry Tunnel, a single-lane passage under the Marin Headlands, in 1935.
The CCC camp closed in 1936, but the tunnel remains on Bunker Road in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It was extensively renovated by the National Park Service in 2016-17.
