OverviewCottonwood Cabin is located in central Washington's Entiat Valley, on the banks of the Entiat River at an elevation of 3,000 feet. Constructed in the 1940s as administrative housing, the facility and on-site barn and corral were used seasonally by fire, trail and campground crew personnel.
Today the cabin offers visitors a wonderful setting for recreation and relaxation from June through November in the forested mountain terrain of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. The cabin can be accessed by standard passenger vehicles over gravel roads.
The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest is defined by its diverse landscapes, boasting high, glaciated alpine peaks, lush valleys of old growth forest, and rugged shrub-steppe country.
Guests at Cottonwood Cabin will find that the surrounding area offers opportunities to hike, fish, bike and enjoy a long list of outdoor recreational activities throughout the year.
The one room cabin (20' x 16') can accommodate four people at a time. Amenities include hot and cold running water (summer months only), propane cook stove, wall heater, refrigerator, and LED lights.
Take some time to visit Mount Rainer National Park, which offers a fantastic glimpse into glaciers, subalpine ecology, and volcanic landscapes typical in the region.
