Minidoka Guard Shack Pinhole

A military police waiting room at the Minidoka internment camp site. Its cemented rocks have endured despite not being of any value to the government or private parties dismantling the camp. Currently, The National Park Service does not offer visitor services at the site but you can get your Minidoka National Monument passport stamp at Haggerman Fossil Beds National Monument, about an hour north west. On May 15, 2007, the NPS presented a proposal to Congress that would provide base funding and designation as Minidoka National Historic Site. The National Park Service has only purchased two camp sites, Minidoka and Manzanar. Minidoka National Monument, Idaho. August 2005
