The Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) exhibit shows the camp located on the site and the construction of the Watch Tower Lodge that houses both the museum and the CCC exhibits. Outside, signage shows the locations of the former amusement park rides that were once a part of Black Hawk State Historic Site.
