I was on a fire suppression crew on the Quilcene District during the summer of 1954. Our quarters were in what was left of the old CCC camp on Penny Creek. There were crew quarters on the north side of the road, and the cook shack on the south side. The crew quarters had a kind of day room with a ping pong table, and we each had our own rooms. Not bad digs, but the food wasn't anything to write home about. I think that summer was the last it was used.
The ‘Gold Creek’ camp, south of Twisp was located near Foggy Dew Campground on the North Fk. of Gold Creek - just across the road to Foggy Dew TH from the Campground.
There were ‘satellite’ camps at places like 8-mile on the Chewuch River north of Winthrop, at Lost River above Mazama, and (I think) up Twisp River near War Cr. campground.
hmmmm, now, thinking about it - The old Salmon Meadows Lodge, above Conconully (burnt down about 20 years ago) was a CCC effort. So maybe there was a satellite camp over there from the Gold Creek camp? Or, would that satellite camp maybe have been a part of whatever District was east of Fort Lewis?
