Camp Details:

The cabin was built in 1913 by Tommy Thompson, Assistant Ranger of the Suiattle-Finney district. At the time, construction budgets were limited to $800, and rangers often built their own stations. Construction details on the Suiattle Guard Station, such as the half-dovetail notching, show that Ranger Thompson knew how to work with logs. It is a testament to his skill that the cabin survives to this day as one of the two oldest administrative buildings on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. The Suiattle Guard Station was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. This one bedroom cabin contains one full-sized bed, a table, two benches, one futon couch/bed, two chairs, a propane refrigerator, stove and hot water heater, and a wood stove (firewood available outside). A bathroom with a flush toilet is located at the back of the guard station. An outhouse is located 20 feet from the building. The water source to the building consists of a spring that is run into a small collection box on the hillside behind the cabin and piped into the building. This water is NOT DRINKABLE and is to be used only for the toilet.
