Overview Service & Activities
About This 196-square foot cabin sits atop Mt. Wam on a rocky point in the middle of the Ten Lakes Proposed Wilderness Area. It has been used as an observation point for spotting forest fires since 1931. It was abandoned in 1951 and only used periodically until 1999 when it was restored. The lookout can be accessed by using trails 77, 78 or 339. Due to trail difficulty we discourage bringing small children. The cabin sleeps four and is equipped with a woodstove, two twin size bed platforms, 4 thin sleeping pads, miscellaneous cooking utensils, axe, bucket, shovel and candles. Due to vandalism however, these items are not guaranteed. The lookout is not wired for electricity and has an outdoor toilet. A small spring is located 0.8 mile from the cabin; we recommend bringing your own drinking water as all open water is considered contaminated. Reservations may be taken by the Ranger Station only 3 days in advance of your stay or contact the National Recreation Reservation Service at 1-877-444-6777 or The cabin can be reserved 180 days in advance of your stay. $20.00 per night, 14 day stay limit.
