Camp Growden, known as "Little America" because it housed CCC enrollees from around the country, was built on Sherman Pass a few miles west of Kettle Falls. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCCs) changed the face of the Colville National Forest during the 1930s. CCC workers built roads, trails, camps, and buildings, many of which are still in use today.

It was one of the largest CCC camps in the area. An octagonal concrete fountain and an earth-filled dam still stand at the site.
