Generally called "Depot Camp," it is the oldest standing lumber camp in Wisconsin.

It remains where originally built in 1880, in what was one of the greatest white pine regions of the middle west. Expert woodsmen built the camp as is evidenced by the skilled workmanship on the hewn corners, floors, and bunks.

The winding trail along McCaslin Brook was the supply road over which countless lumberjacks on foot and on bobsleds entered and left the woods for over half a century.
Erected 1972
