Two Color Guard Station

  

Rustic forest cabin in pine tree forest

Two Color Guard Station, is a large cabin nestled along Wild and Scenic Eagle Creek below the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Surrounded by rugged mountains, the cabin has a spectacular view from the back porch with a large riparian meadow extending towards the creek. Located nearby is the Two Color Campground.

Inside, the cabin is comfortably furnished with a table and chairs, couches, and enough beds to accommodate twelve people. It is equipped with propane lights, a propane cook stove and oven, refrigerator and heating stove, as well as cookware, place settings and most cooking utensils. Water is currently unavailable so visitors must bring plenty of water for drinking, cooking and washing.

History

The Civilian Conversation Corps originally constructed the Two Color Guard Station in the 1930s, and was used as crew quarters and bunkhouse. The original building built by the CCC was removed in 1976. A new guard station was built in 1959.

Annual Accomplishments with Recreation Rentals Fees

The 2005 Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA) permits federal land management agencies to charge modest fees at campgrounds, trailheads, rental cabins and other high-impact recreation areas on federal lands. Similar to other national forests, the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest re-invests over 95% of these funds to maintain, operate and enhance the facility where they were collected. These annual accomplishments make the facility safer and more enjoyable for our visitors.
