The next area is Mill Bluff State park. The park wanted a swimming pond so they had to call the loggers in to clear out an area.

Heading into the town of Camp Douglas. At one time the town had a cattle loading operation.

across the tracks on the siding the Camp Douglas Farmers Co-op has a fuel oil, gas and LP yard.

Andy,
I have long been a fan of your modeling, and it is wonderful for me to be able to see more of your layout.  I like your fidelity to the area you are modeling.  I have never seen anyone else model the facilities in a state park.  I like the logging scene and the oil dealer, but I like the farm scene best.  Thanks for sharing your layout with us.
Jerry

After the train clears the bridge in Camp Douglas the first thing it sees is the Pulaski sisters house.





then Doc Nelson's house.

Across the street from Doc's house is the old livery stable, today it is used by the local co-op for storage, The small addition on the side was a cobblers shop.







next to the livery was the Hudson dealer.

Thank you for sharing all the photo's Andy, your layout looks great. There's one thing I think it could use though , some untidying , I mean there's no trash or filth or grime anywhere, but tastes differ.
I love photo's, don't we all.

Just looking back I realize it's your roads most of all, the ones with the dirt roads look far more realistic then with the asphalt roads.
I love photo's, don't we all.

A small shed owned by the Farmers Co-op.





The curved tracks coming into town were never elevated, many a coal train dumped a car or two here. Just cleaning the last one up.
