The Doe Lake Recreation Area is centered around a classic 1930s Civilian Conservation Corps dining hall that has been historically restored. This beautiful building sits atop a grassy hill overlooking the clear waters of Doe Lake. Restoration efforts are the result of an agreement between the Friends of Doe Lake and the Forest Service. A bath house, including showers, was built in the same architectural style.
