History

Camp Washburn, was used by the Army Amphibious Command as a landing area during World War II. It was home to the 594th Engineer Boat and Shore Regiment, which was a branch of the 4th Engineer Special Brigade. It was paired up with Camp Havedoneit and Camp Candoit, which were both located nearby. It was abandoned during April, 1943, as Camp Candoit came into existence. Today what remains is the landing area and the middle of the island, which have not been altered at all since the existence of the camp
