Civilian Conservation Corp Campground

Company 2420 was transferred to  Camp SP-17 at Munford  Company 2420 -V consisted of World War Veterans. The veterans began work with the construction of their camp next to Cheaha Lake (Cheaha State Park's first campground) in what is now known as the CCC Campground (Primitive Campground). Construction began with the mess hall and barracks, and then the officer's quarters. When you camp in this campground you can see and feel the history of the park.  Original structures still exist in the campground.
