    In some Pennsylvania state parks, you can stay in cabins built my the CCC..They have since been updated with modern conviences, but still a nice place to stay.

    Is it legal to MD on CCC camp lands or are they owned by the federal/state gov't? Just curious.

    There are also CCC camps in New Hampshire. If you google CCC camps and your state, you can see if there are any CCC camps in your state.

    I stumbled upon a CCC camp site near Prescott. The creek next to it is good for finding gold...

    above that site, is Howel smelter...the two sites are intertwined...the terraces are the smelter, just above the hole in the creek bottom...tent location just below the road between the camp an smelter...
    smelter was built by barry goldwaters grand father...?great grandfather? packed the tools an fittings across the desert from la paz...
    sharlot hall has some information on the site...most of the bricks were scavenged for gold content...seems the guy on fire watch was intoxicated, let the thing cool...turned the smelter into a big slag pile...I knew someone who got some bricks an ran them for content...

    one of the drafts is above the hole mentioned...

    pm me for location on a pile of silver ore...galena, lead content so high one can place a stone on a open flame an watch the metal run out...nasty/deadly, purty rocks...
    not far from the location you mentioned.
    seems the old timers were is such a fuss to get at the gold vein in walker, they threw the silver out...

    lots of gold in that area... old timers dug below the gold bearing area...look above your head when standing in the creek...promise.

    There are other state parks in Texas that were built by the CCC, at least one of which (to sweeten the pot a little) has many of the earmarks of a KGC depository. For you conspiracy theorists, this fits the hide in plain sight adage.

    the local CCC people dumped everything into this cave system, when the federals stopped funding...

    Wow...
    I just started doing some research on the CCC locations here in TN. I was researching my Dad's service. The National Archives in St. Louis has all of the records of folks that served. There were 77 camps in TN. PBS did a documentary in 2009 about the Roosevelt program of CCC. VERY good program if you can get your hands on it. Anyway, I am researching the camp locations here in West TN that Dad was at. I plan on getting permission to sweep them.
    I love exploring history, especially when it involves my family!!!

    SAFE & Happy Detecting!!!!
