Acquired by the USDA Forest Service in 1990, the site of the old St. Cloud Ranch homestead has been developed to provide public access to an area of local historical importance. The area is possibly the largest remaining natural wetland in the Gorge, providing habitat for an extensive variety of wildlife. The site is culturally significant to Native Americans as well. Historically, members of the Watlala Tribe utilized many of the plant and animal species that were or are present at the St. Cloud site.
