Cohen Campbell Fish Hatchery

The Cohen Campbell Fish Hatchery was constructed in 1935 with WPA/CCC funds. Originally the hatchery was called Camp Styx. At times it was known as the Richardson Hatchery and for many years Styx Hatchery. In 1985 the Pine Ridge facility was renamed and dedicated as the Cohen Campbell Hatchery in honor of a deceased manager who had provided 31 years of service to the hatchery program.
