Konocti Camp #27 is a minimum-security facility under CDCR supervision, this camp plays a crucial role in supporting government agencies during emergency responses to wildfires, floods, and other natural or man-made disasters. Additionally, camp crews contribute to park maintenance, assist with flood mitigation through sandbagging, and participate in reforestation projects. Participation in the Conservation (Fire) Camp Program is entirely voluntary for incarcerated individuals. Those who choose to volunteer must meet specific eligibility criteria aimed at ensuring public safety. These include avenues for criminal record expungement, creating new pathways for employment, and aiding in their successful reintegration into society.

Konocti Conservation Camp #27, jointly operated by CDCR and CAL FIRE, serves as a crucial resource for responding to emergencies like wildfires and floods. Since its establishment in April 1963, the camp has worked collaboratively with both agencies to provide incarcerated hand crews, essential for supporting local, state, and federal responders during crises. Beyond emergency response, camp participants engage in community service and conservation projects year-round.

The camp's operations include the deployment of vital resources such as the Mobile Kitchen Unit (MKU) and Mobile Equipment Unit (MEU), which play pivotal roles in fire suppression missions. The MKU ensures that all personnel involved in major campaign fires receive meals, while the MEU is responsible for servicing emergency fire vehicles in Lake County, boasting one of the largest heavy equipment garages in the area.

In addition to emergency response, Konocti Conservation Camp dedicates thousands of crew hours to local communities through various work projects and conservation efforts annually. These projects span a wide range of areas, including Boggs Mountain DSF, Sonoma County Roads, Northshore Fire Protection, and Mt. Konocti Recreation Area, among others. The hand crews also contribute to tasks such as shaded fuel breaks, hazard tree removal, vegetation clearing, and campground maintenance, ensuring the safety and preservation of natural landscapes.

With five incarcerated fire crews and specialized units like the MKU and MEU, Konocti Conservation Camp remains steadfast in its commitment to serving communities and safeguarding the environment against the threat of wildfires and other disasters.
