Yeoman Park Ranger Station, painted in oils by Ethel D. Brown, grand daughter of William S. Brown. He was Forest Ranger at Yeoman Park from 1920 to 1941.
"At an elevation of 9,000 ft, Yeoman Park campground is located on the edge of a wetland meadow near Brush Creek and is partly within a mature spruce forest. There are beautiful views of Craig peak (11,902 ft). ... In the White River National Forest, area trails lead into the Holy Cross Wilderness. ... A visit to the historic mining town of Fulford is just a few miles up Forest Road 418. Foundations of an old Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp built in the 1930's can be seen in the meadow northwest of the campground." -- http://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/whiteriver 3/4/2013
