Six Civilian Conservation Corps camps in the area which became Shenandoah National Park were at Big Meadows, Skyland, Pinnacles, Piney River, Baldface, and Dundo from 1933 to 1942.

Camp Fechner, near here, was named in honor of Robert Fechner, first Director of the Corps. It was also the third CCC camp in the nation. Enrollees helped with dozens of conservation projects in Shenandoah.
