Reflections On The Lake
"In the 1930’s my uncle Hans purchased all of the land from near Dolloff Dam all the way around to where Meindl Way is now. The original camp they built is off of what is now Meindl Way. It was a little 12x12 shack. They lived in that camp for a whole year. It was the Depression and no one had jobs. They actually survived in that shack for a whole year living off of the land. They picked berries and they would shoot a deer, even out of season, because they needed the food to live on."
