The wood-framed, single story cabin accommodates up to four people. It features a kitchen, bedroom and living room that also serves as a bedroom. Furnishings include four single beds, chairs and a table.
The cabin is equipped with propane for heat, a cook stove, refrigerator/freezer and propane lighting. Most cleaning supplies, limited dishes, pots, pans and utensils are provided. However, it is strongly suggested visitors bring their own. Water is not available on-site. An outhouse is located nearby. Though horses are allowed, there is no corral and no hitching post; horses must be highlined—trailer access to the cabin is difficult.
Things to bring include food, water, sleeping bags or bedding, a flashlight, matches, first aid kit, trash bags, towels and washcloths. Cabin should be cleaned before your departure, cleaning supplies provided.
Wenatchee Guard Station sits at 5290 ft in a grassy clearing on a high plateau dotted with mixed conifers, offering majestic views of the northern tip of the Blue Mountains. In the spring, wildflowers, such as yarrow, Piper's anemone, Big-leaf sandwort, Showy Aster, Camas pink fairy, daisy and sagebrush sweep color down the slopes into the valleys.
Campers enjoy the view of Grouse Flats and look for herds of Rocky Mountain elk, mule deer and white-tailed deer. They can also listen for the call of geese, ducks, hawks, grouse, wild turkeys, screech owls and wrens.
