The site is accessible to vehicles from mid to late June until mid October to the first of November, depending on the weather. Call Pomeroy Ranger District for road conditions before making your reservations, as refunds will no longer be authorized due to inclement weather. Winter use will require alternate transportation such as skis, snowshoes, or snowmobile. From Dayton, Washington, travel 4th Street south. Follow road directions to Bluewood Ski Area. Before the entrance to the ski area, park in the available snowmobile parking area at Touchet Corral. Travel the groomed snowmobile route, taking all lefts to Godman, approximately 13 miles. There are direction signs along the route put up by the local snowmobile club. Although visitors may ski to the cabin, the route is difficult and for advanced skiers only.
