About

The guard station at Lodgepole Meadow was built in 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corps to replace the original station built in 1911. Lodgepole Meadow was used as a remote guard station for the early Forest Service crews working in the area. During WWII, Herb and Zella Wright, a husband and wife lookout team, lived throughout the winter high up on the Blue Rock Lookout several miles away watching for enemy aircraft. Lodgepole Guard Station served as their base camp. Today, Lodgepole Guard Station is a perfect destination for horse enthusiasts, families, couples or large groups looking for a unique camping experience in the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest. Entry through the access gates and to the cabin is by combination lock. The combination will be included in your confirmation letter.
