Malheur National Forest

The CCC was created in 1933 to provide young men useful work during the Depression. Camp Canyon Creek (Company 1231) was established in 1937. The CCC built numerous facilities such as District offices, the John Day Compound, fire guard stations, lookout towers, campgrounds and other improvements.

The John Day Administrative Site was the most ambitious project constructed by the CCC on the Malheur N.F. The site was listed in 1986 on the National Register of Historic Places.

The contributions of the young men of the CCC, under the supervision of the US Army and the US Forest Service, are still found throughout the Malheur National Forest.
