Standing on twenty-five acres on the eastern shore of Clear Lake in the Manistique Ranger District of the Hiawatha National Forest is a rustic camp meant to serve “organizations of welfare purposes and low income groups whose financial standing would ordinarily prevent the renting of a camp for meetings and outings.” The camp includes an administration building, a mess hall, an infirmary, a custodian's dwelling, a bathhouse, a comfort station, and cabins. All are gable-roofed and wood-framed, with board-and-batten exteriors on concrete foundations or pier foundations; some have rubble-stone chimneys. Enrollees of the 3613th Company, CCC, at Camp Evelyn, built them using the standard plans of the Forest Service Region Nine, U.S. Department of Agriculture.
