In order to take care of the many automobile tourists in Yellowstone National Park, camps with many comforts and sanitary conveniences are being laid out as rapidly as funds are made available. The Canyon Automobile Camp, the latest to be opened, was completed at the end of the 1924 park season. The water supply, sewerage system, garbage and refuse disposal, mosquito-control measures, stores, service facilities, policing, and management of this camp are described in this paper. Of particular interest are the rustic type of comfort station and the tables and benches installed in the camp.
Acknowledgments.The writer wishes to acknowledge his appreciation to Superintendent Albright and Master Plumber Wiggins, of Yellowstone National Park, for their assistance in furnishing data for this paper.
