The old Civilian Conservation Corps Camp in Kokee State Park is a complex of eleven wood-frame buildings surrounding an open grassed quadrangle. These simple “rustic” style buildings were constructed in 1935 and are sheltered on three sides by koa/ohia montane forest. This camp is significant as an intact example of the camps built by the Civilian Conservation Corps that were established throughout the United States in natural areas. Of the five original camps that were built in Hawaii, Kokee is the only C.C.C. Camp that remains a natural area.
