A Civilian Conservation Corp Camp operated at Halls Flat, near Poison Lake, in western Lassen County,  from 1933-1942. The camp provided the manpower for the Lassen National Forest’s nearby Blacks Mountain Experimental Forest. This CCC camp did everything from the actual logging of pine beetle infested trees (1.6 million board feet in 1938) to grazing studies and range habitat improvements.
