Felton Camp Ground Getting In Shape

The work on Felton camp grounds is progressing rapidly under the supervision of Mr. Rice and partner, with a company to back them.

The automobile grounds are to be a rustic panorama, made from redwood limbs and poles, and altogether it will be a great improvement to the old campground below the covered bridge on the San Lorenzo River. Nature has supplied a natural resort, where towering trees and rustic nooks, places for hammocks and tents, and in fact everything to make a beautiful summer resort of a tent city and automobile park.
