• Cabins


Timpanogas 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. Drinking water is not provided on-site but is available from a hand pump at the nearby Timpanogas Campground until late September. High elevation lakes attract heavy concentrations of mosquitoes through the summer, so come prepared Entry to the shelter is by combination lock; guests should call the Ranger District at (541) 782-2283 five days prior to arrival to confirm the combination for the gate lock The last 7 miles of road to this shelter are rough and narrow Guests must pack out all trash and clean cabin before departure Smoking is not permitted Guests should contact the Ranger District prior to arriving to check on any restrictions or conditions, such as fire or road closures, weather or storms, that may affect their visit Learn more about the <a href=” http://www.fs.usda.gov/willamette”>Willamette National Forest Don’t Move Firewood: Please protect Pacific Northwest forests by preventing the spread of invasive species.
