Ozark Tree Army: The CCC at Devil’s Den State Park is a photo exhibit featuring many photographs and select artifacts from the 1930s-era Civilian Conservation Corps work at Devil’s Den State Park near West Fork, Arkansas. The park was created on October 13, 1933, and the first company of CCC workers arrived a week later. The photographs document the efforts of this New Deal program and hundreds of corps members as they created trails, built unique structures that fit the Ozark landscape, and developed infrastructure that allows us to still enjoy the park today.
