Set on a gently rolling slope in a clearing planted with young Christmas tree starts, Clearwater Big House Cabin gives the feel of being a winter chalet hideaway, even during the warmest months...[more]
Clearwater Big House Cabin
This site is located approximately 22 miles south of Pomeroy, Washington. Take 15th St. south for approximately 17 miles. The paved road ends here. Continue on Forest Service Road 40 for 7 miles to Clearwater Junction (where the fire lookout is located). Turn left onto Forest Service Road 42 for 0.25 mile, and then turn right into the Clearwater Guard Station area. The rental cabin is the two-story building. Automobile access to this site runs from approximately mid June thru the end of October, depending on weather conditions. Sometimes automobile access may be earlier or later than anticipated, so when making your reservation be prepared to have an alternate travel method (snow mobile, snow shoes & sled, etc) in case the snow stays longer in the spring, or comes in earlier in the fall. We will no longer authorize refunds for inaccessibility due to inclement weather conditions. The same route is accessible during winter months by a groomed snowmobile trail (except the 0.25 mile of Forest Service Road 42 and access road into the Guard Station area are not groomed). Parking will be at Rose Spring Sno-Park, and from there, visitors ski, snowshoe or snow mobile approximately 5.5 miles to the cabin. A Washington State Sno-Park Permit is required to park at the Sno-Park.
