Baca Campground History and Highlights - Lincoln NF - NM

by Wobbly Otter Outdoors

June 2, 2019

This is a video made about Baca Campground on the Lincoln NF. The first three and a half minutes talk about the site’s history based on a poster made with the efforts of the Scanning for History through Metal Detection PIT projects and which is posted on the site’s information board. The site is an important place on the Forest starting with prehistoric use by Native Americans, to historic period use as a ranch, CCC camp, Unemployed Girl’s Education Camp, and temporary internment camp for Japanese-Americans at the beginning of WWII. Enjoy!
