Camp Marshall/Tomlinson Run State Park

Location:

  1. Camp Marshall CCC Camp – Marshall County
  2. Tomlinson Run State Park – Hancock County

Much of the western panhandle of the state was taken care of by the Marshall CCC Camp. This Camp, located in Moundsville, Marshall County, frequently worked in what would become the Tomlinson Run State Park. This park, located in Hancock County, was also enhanced through WPA projects starting in 1941, after the Camp Marshall CCC disbanded. The WPA workers entered the park to complete several construction projects, mainly infrastructure. The WPA used the site until 1942 when the dam and the 29 acre lake were completed. The barracks for the camp workers were located at the present-day site of the group camp. Several trails were established during the New Deal era.
