Tight, attractive and surprisingly scarce first edition of this landmark 3-in-1 study created by the Civilian Conservation Corps of the National Park Service, with Part I covering "Administration and Basic Service Facilities," Part II covering "Recreational and Cultural Facilities" and Part III covering "Overnight and Organized Camp Facilities." A sharp copy of a title almost always found only in the form of modern reprints.
