One such facility was the Soapstone Camp, which was located near Soapstone Mountain on Mirror Lake Highway. Jon Scarlet is working with the Kamas Ranger Station on a project to collect photographs, information about people, and stories of work done in that camp.

The product of this research will be a permanent information kiosk erected on the site of the camp and a brochure describing what was done there. People who were in the CCC at Soapstone Camp, know of stories or photos from that time should contact Jon Scarlet at: 435-658-0390 or
