Eagle Creek Overlook Shelter

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The back side of the CCC shelter, Eagle Creek Overlook (bobcat)


The Civilian Conservation Corps shelter at the Eagle Creek Overlook was completed in 1938 to afford the public views of the ongoing construction of the Bonneville Dam. The structure has a stone-columned porch, kitchen with stone fireplace, and restrooms. The building underwent a restoration project in 1994. The shelter now serves as the focal point for the group campground here (reservations required) from May 1st to September 30th.

The views from the shelter are limited nowadays as the conifers have grown up, but at various points along the Overlook Trail, you can get good views to the Bonneville Dam as well as across the river to Table Mountain.
