Did You Know?

Tule Lake

All of the flat land where the Camp was constructed was once under the waters of Tule Lake. You may see small white objects littering the ground. These are the shells of freshwater clams that lived in the lake bottom. The Klamath Reclamation Project drained the lake to create fertile farmland.
