Welcome to the Tule Lake Monument

The Tule Lake National Monument includes both the the Tule Lake Segregation Center, the largest and most controversial of the sites where Japanese Americans were incarcerated during World War II, and Camp Tulelake, which was first a Civilian Conservation Corps camp, then an additional facility to detain Japanese Americans, and finally a prisoner of war camp.

Tule Lake Segregation Center

Converted to a high-security Segregation Center in 1943, Tule Lake became the largest of the 10 War Relocation Authority (WRA) camps.

Camp Tulelake

Camp Tulelake, a former Civilian Conservation Corps camp, later housed Japanese Americans in 1943 and German POWs from 1944-1946
