OverviewTimpanogas Shelter sits on shore of its namesake lake at an altitude of 5,300 feet in the Willamette National Forest within the Oregon Cascades Recreation Area. The cabin was patterned after the old Civilian Conservation Corps 3-sided shelter and was built in 1991 with the help of a University of Oregon outdoor school class and the Walker Rim Snowmobile Club.
The cabin is typically open from late June through late October. It is accessible by car, but the last 7 miles of the road are rough and narrow.
The cabin is situated in a mountainous and heavily forested area where it is possible to see Diamond Peak, Sawtooth and Cowhorn Mountains. Timpanogas Lake is just one of several alpine lakes in the area.
Anglers enjoy fishing for brook trout and cutthroat on upper and lower Timpanogas Lakes, even though the lakes are closed to motorcraft. Canoeing is also possible on the lakes.
This rustic 15x18-ft. cabin is designed to accommodate 6-8 people and comes equipped with a sleeping loft, a table with benches, solar lights and a wood stove for heat. A picnic table, campfire ring and outhouse with pit toilet are located outside. Additional camping is available on-site for up to 20 people.
