Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Big Pines Recreation Camp (elevation 6,862) was developed in 1923 by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the Department of Parks and Recreation. It became a year-round resort with crowds of up to 10,000 on many weekends. Big Pines is located four miles west of Wrightwood in the Angeles National Forest. In 1940 Los Angeles County transferred the land to the U.S. Forest Service. Big Pines continues to be a popular recreation area, with three ski resorts, campgrounds and Jackson Lake.
Four men survey in preparation for the masonry construction of the large entrance into Big Pines Camp. From left to right: Los Angeles County Superintendent Fred E. Wadsworth, Los Angeles County supervisor R. F. McClellan, C.J. Herbold, and chief mechanical engineer William Davidson.
