Cottonwood Cabin

Cottonwood Cabin is in central Washington's Entiat Valley, on the banks of the Entiat River four miles above Entiat Falls, in a mature lodgepole pine and spruce forest at an elevation of 3,000 feet.


Steeped in history


The cabin was constructed in the 1940s as an administrative site to house fire, trail and campground crew personnel. The facility also includes a barn and corral where the district kept stock during a portion of the season for use by the trail crew and fire lookouts.


A recreational oasis


Today the cabin offers visitors a wonderful setting for recreation and relaxation from June through November in the forested mountain terrain of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest.  The area surrounding the cabin is home to abundant wildlife.


Guests will find that the surrounding area offers opportunities to hike, fish, bike and enjoy a long list of outdoor recreational activities throughout the year.


Anglers will enjoy casting a line into the Entiat River above Entiat Falls. Carving through a wide, U-shaped valley, the river is dominated by relatively shallow riffles interspersed with pools, plunge pools and glides where the trout fishing is quite good.  


Nearby Silver Falls Trail is a 1.8 mile hike along Silver Creek to the base of the 141-foot Silver Falls. Along the way, hikers are treated to views of the 141-foot cascade, as well as the Entiat valley below, and the mountains above. Beautiful stone staircases and bridges along the trail offer many stopping points to take the perfect photograph. 

Cowpuncher Guard Station Cowpuncher GS is temporarily closed due to a structure fire. The Forest Service plans to reopen the guard station with a temporary yurt until the cabin can be rebuilt.

Crooked Creek Information Center Nestled at the head of Valdez Arm, the Crooked Creek Information Site is poised between the marine world of Prince William Sound and the forests of the mainland. Staffed from Memorial Day to Labor Day, the site features spawning chum and pink salmon, abundant waterfowl and an occasional hungry black bear. The Crooked Creek Information Site is a small, 3 acre site which harbors a waterfall and a clear water stream where pink and chum salmon return each summer to spawn. Occasionally, black bears can be observed feasting on the returning fish. The first salmon generally appear in the stream by mid-July and are present through October.

Daisy Pass Blue Lake #404.3A The Daisy Pass Blue Lake Trail #404.3A begins at an intersection with the Daisy Pass Trail #404 and ends at Blue Lake. This trail is within the Raggeds Wilderness Area where wilderness regulations apply. There is a short steep climb as the trail switchbacks to the shelf cradling Blue Lake. Purple Mountain and Afley Peak form the backdrop for this pretty lake. The cliffs of the Scarp Ridge rim the lake basin to the south and Schuylkill Mountain, raising 12,146 ft., dominates the views to the northeast. In late July and early August the meadows are thick with beautiful wildflowers.
