  1. I found a picture in my shop of the Charlton Flats Campground back in August 21 of 1933. I believe that’s the year that the campground opened. If anybody is interested in this postcard, I would send it to them or your office. It’s approximately 4“ x 12“ across. Just want to get it into the proper hands.
