Carl C. Hill was a native Douglas County resident, born in Wilbur, Oregon in 1889. Mr. Hill was active in Douglas County for decades. He lived in Days Creek and was for a time the Principal and School Administrator of Days Creek School. He served on the State Legislature, beginning in 1941. He was the President of the South Umpqua Rod and Gun Club and served as head of the State Game Commission before being elected the Douglas County Judge.
During the six years he served as county judge, Hill was interested in the organization of the Douglas County Park Department. He used his office to aid the Department in building a solid foundation of operation, while giving personal assistance to various park projects. Following his service with the county court, a grateful Parks Department developed the Carl C Hill Wayside. Douglas County was very proud and grateful of his many accomplishments and therefore commemorated this wayside park to him.
