Bear Lake Comfort Station

Larimer County

The Civilian Conservation Corps constructed a number of buildings and structures in Rocky Mountain National Park during the 1930s.  The Bear Lake Comfort Station represents a modest structure exhibiting the use of uncoursed rubblestone indicative of the Rustic style employed by the CCC. 

A black and white photo of the station with large stones at the base, gabled  roof, and wood siding. On the roof and around the station there is a layer of snow and large pine trees in the background.

The Rustic Style may be characterized by its use of native materials to blend in with the natural surroundings.  Listed under the Rocky Mountain National Park and the Historic Park Landscapes in National and State Parks Multiple Property Submissions.
