Fishing & Swimming, Courtesy of the CCC

The CCC improved the lake at New Germany State Park, in Garrett County, Maryland, by clearing out submerged logs, "building a new earthen breast works for the dam," and adding a spillway (from an information plaque at the park).

After the CCC's improvements, fishing and swimming became popular at the lake; and these activities  continue to be popular today.  Another example of how yesteryear's government investment is still benefiting us today.
