OverviewThe Hamma Hamma Cabin is a historic cabin that offers guests a tranquil setting to relax and recreate. Formerly a guard station, the cabin was built from 1936-1937 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The facility was used as an administrative site for Forest Service fire and trail crews. The site is nominated to the National Register of Historic Places for the skill and craftsmanship that went into its construction and architecture.
The cabin is open year-round and is typically accessible by car; however, snowy conditions require alternative transportation such as cross-country skis or snowshoes. Many amenities are offered, so guests only need to bring a few of their own supplies for an enjoyable stay.
Hamma Hamma Cabin sits on a landscaped clearing surrounded by old-growth Douglas firs, dogwoods and rhododendrons. The scenic Hamma Hamma River flows nearby, which is fed by the Mildred Lakes within the Mt. Skokomish Wilderness and drops from the eastern slope of the Olympic Range into the Hood Canal. The name Hamma Hamma comes from a Twana village once located at the river's mouth and called Hab'hab, referring to a reed that grows along the river's banks.
Hamma Hamma Cabin is conveniently located near The Brothers Wilderness, Mt. Skokomish Wilderness, Hood Canal and Olympic National Park. Numerous activities, such as hiking, mountain climbing, fishing, hunting and river walks are available in the area.
Hamma Hamma Cabin can accommodate up to six guests. The single-story cabin features a living room with a hexagonal bay window overlooking the Hamma Hamma River drainage, and is furnished with a futon that unfolds into a bed. There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with bunk beds, all with mattresses. The kitchen is equipped with a table and chairs, stove, dishes, pots, silverware and cooking utensils. The bathroom has a flush toilet.
Take some time to visit Olympic National Park, known for its diverse and spectacular ecosystems.
