The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) established a camp at Elk River, Idaho, in 1933. It was designated as Camp F-133 (a Forest Service camp). Elk River is a small town in mid-panhandle Idaho, west of the Clearwater Range.
The main activities of the CCC enrollees were probably tree planting and road work. We know from the attached photograph that the camp was active in 1934 and CCC company 1238 had been installed there.
Elk River campground near the village of Elk Creek looks to have been built by the CCC and might be on the location of the former CCC camp. It lies in the Nez Pierce-Clearwater National Forests.
