Camp Withycombe History
Originally known as the Clackamas Rifle Range it was established as a training camp in 1909 and expanded during World War I. During World War I it served as a headquarters for the National Guard, a central supply depot and training center.
In the 1930's the camp became a supply depot. Some of the buildings on the camp property, such as the Adjutant General's house (1938), were built by the WPA during this period.
The camp still serves as a training facility, supply depot, and equipment repair facility for the National Guard but the rifle range is now closed.
Active Oregon National Guard post with the Oregon Military Museum on site. The museum is open 9-5 on Friday and Saturday.
