What remains of the New Liberty CCC camp can be found deep in the Mark Twain National Forest just south of Winona in Oregon County.
When I first visited the area, my only intention was to locate Falling Spring and Falling Spring Mill.
However, the yucca plants and stonework caught my eye as I was driving and I had to stop to investigate.
Through my research, I learned that this area was neglected due to budget cuts, which would explain why on my first visit much of the New Liberty site was overgrown.
However, work has recently begun at the New Liberty CCC camp to make the site more accessible for visitors. The plan includes clearing brush, cleaning and reestablishing existing trails, and replacing signs. Those steps will make the site even more enjoyable.
