Parks and Monuments Camps

This list of camps is adapted from the listings available at CCC Legagy Colorado list. For camps in other states, see Camp Lists. This list will be added to as information is compiled. All data are subject to verification.

This page has Parks and Monuments camps, those where project work was directed by the National Park Service. See also Reclamation and Grazing, Forestry, and Soil Conservation Service pages for additional camps.

Please Note: We’re finding that camp locations often changed designations, creating duplication in these lists. For example, the National Monument camps were redesignated as National Park camps. The definitive source for National Park Service CCC information is the online book by John Paige, see especially Appendix C, Table C-1. Note also that Camp NP-1 in Rocky Mountain National Park was occupied only in the summer months, but NP-4 was a year-round camp after the first year.
