Historic Interest: Camping at this area was well established before development of a campground began in 1920. Initial camping was at Indian Lake just north of the present highway bridge, and the campground was known as Lewey Bridge (made up of current Sites 016 through 033), being named for the hermit and campground resident Louis Seymour. Reachable by only 13 miles of poor roads, the area was initially developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930's. Modernization, however, was not attempted until after the development of the present highway.
