Report – 06 Patented Lands in the Park

Report of the Superintendent of the Crater Lake National Park, 1910

 Patented Lands in the Park.

There are approximately 1,337 acres of patented lands in the southeastern corner of the park; these lands are mainly timber lands and, so far as known, there is no one living permanently upon them within the limits of the park, but there is a possibility that there may be summer homes built upon some of them in the near future.

The situation in regard to these patented lands is about as it was a year ago, excepting that there is now and then a tract of it going into the hands of some timber speculator. There are 1,121.11 acres of unperfected bona fide claims.

I can not urge too strongly the acquisition of these lands by the Government.
