Project F-32 (Company 4777) and Project F-17 (Company 1335) were stationed at the Pine Valley CCC Camp.

Company 4777 (Project F-32) was stationed at the Pine Valley CCC Camp during the summer of 1932 (first enrollment period). Then in October of 1932 it moved to the Leeds CCC Camp for the winter.

The camp's assignment was to construct roads into forest lands and to build fences, public camp grounds, camp sites, water lines, picnic tables, and trails.

On the first day of June 1933, the camp was disbanded and all the men were sent home, except for a few that were placed in other camps.

Some of the original CCC buildings remain and in use for the Forest Service Ranger Station. One CCC built home on the property has been moved to St. George and is still in use there.
