Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2683
Significance: The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), Camp Tulelake embodies distinct design characteristics of CCC camps and is a rare extant example. The simple utilitarian buildings, arranged in a standard plan, are representative of CCC camps throughout the country. Although the poor physical condition of the buildings detracts from the integrity of materials and design, much of the fabric is original. The integrity of setting and location is intact and the camp retains associations with its historic period. As the only surviving CCC camp in the region, the resource retains special significance. Camp Tulelake is directly linked with the Depression and World War II. The enrollees efforts in the development and maintenance of the Tule Lake NWR and their reclamation work accomplished in the Klamath Basin are lasting reminders of the work ethic espoused by the CCC. The camp is militarily significant as the location of confinement for hundred of Japanese-American citizens and later, German prisoners of war. Association with these events of tremendous impact on the economic, political, and social values of this country lends importance to the camp.
