Statement of Significance (as of designation - September 25, 1997):
This is one of the best remaining examples of recreational demonstration area (RDA) planning and design in the country. The RDAs were a new kind of state park planned by the National Park Service during the New Deal. They accommodated private non-profit organizations that operated summer camps for youths. Many rustic-style camp buildings built in the 1930s remain in a second-growth redwood forest, now part of the California state park system.

Condition:
There are no threats indicated, however the steward requested that the landmark be listed as a "watch."

There are no changes indicated.
