Long Description:
The Civilian Conservation Corps was a federal work-relief program during the Great Depression. From 1933 to 1942, the CCC provided work for 31,097 jobless men in South Dakota. At this camp, enrollees constructed the causeway across the river channel at the head of the island, and the dike at the foot, forming Hipple Lake, and built wing dikes to reduce shoreline erosion. In addition, CCC crews backsloped a mile of lake shore; built seven miles of road; erected the Boy Scout cabin, Izaak Walton cabin, and Lewis & Clark monument; developed picinic areas, a trap and skeet range, and three holes of golf; and operated a 70-acre tree nursery.
