We often refer to a camping trip as "roughing it."

But a perusal of camping in the old days gives a whole new meaning to the term "rough."

Historian and Park Service volunteer Larry Smith presents a program on camping at Crater Lake at the Southern Oregon Historical Society center in Medford on Saturday.

SOHS is assembling a display called "Far Out: Southern Oregon in the 1960s," coming to the Woolworth Building in down Medford beginning in late March.
