Sideling Hill Camp

Today as I looked back through some old pictures I found these of the Sideling Hill Camp.
The Sideling Hill Camp was built in 1933 by The Civilian Conservation Corps. Some of the buildings from the camp have since been torn down. The camp is located on State Forest property in the Buchanan District of Fulton County along Oregon Road.

This is all thats left of the camp today, a log cabin that serves as a hunting camp. The cabin is owned by Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR)
The cabin is then rented to private individuals on a yearly lease.

I can only imagine how nice it would be to obtain a lease for such a place and have such a place for a week end get a way. No electricity or running water but I thinh I could get along for a day or so anyway.
