Roaring River Pictures


Recommended Posts

I about fell off my chair the other day when this lady I know showed me some post cards. I don't know the year when they were taken but I thought they were great. She has a few more that she's finding and I'll post them also. These are really great!!! I thought you all would like them!!!

Cool pics. Any idea what year(s)? I've been going to RR since about 1970. I think those are well before that.

Love the old photos, thanks for posting them. I'll have to ask my aunt if she can find any old ones like that. They used to go there back in the 50's.

There are only three things in life that are certain : death, taxes, and the wind blowing at Capps Creek!

The old Lodge and the Sping cave are the only things that are still the same. It's a pity they had to build that new store. It just doesn't feel right. Thanks for the pictures. I look forward to seeing a few more.

If fishing was easy it would be called catching.

I think that dam was built in the 40's, and destroyed by flood in the late 50's maybe 60's. I would think that Tim would have a good guess at the time line. Thanks for the pics Murdoc.

She showed me some others that she's looking for now. One was of workers building the two falls up at hatchery and one was of Bass lake when it was full. She's still looking.

Hi Murdoc. There is a picture of bass lake on the mdc website. It appeared to be located where the lower campground area is now.
