Clackamas Lake Ranger Station

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Restrooms and water fountain, Historic Clackamas Ranger Station (bobcat)
District Ranger's Residence, Historic Clackamas Ranger Station (bobcat)


The ranger station was first established in 1905 although the original building was replaced. Of the buildings currently here, 11 are on the National Register of Historic Places and were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps from 1933-1935. On the east side of Skyline Road is the District Ranger’s residence, which can be rented for short-term stays; across the meadow, near the Joe Graham Horse Camp, you can see the small pumphouse shack. On the west side of Skyline are an office cabin, some old restrooms, and the chimney of the assistant ranger’s house, which burned down in 2003. Other buildings, including the mess hall, blacksmith shop, and warehouse are further back.
