Young men determined to escape economic hardship built this lodge from 1973-1940. They were enrollees in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), one of President Franklin Roosevelt's programs to battle the Great Depression.

The CCC provided men the immediate assistance of food, lodging, training, and much-needed income. It also offered long-term dividends: CCC-constructed parks, roads and bridges, created infrastructures and recreational opportunities that still benefit our country.

Like most CCC buildings, the Table Rock Lodge features local rock and timber. Not only were these materials inexpensive and locally accessible, they also contribute to a style that complements natural surroundings. This lodge, fully restored in 2008, has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
