Did you know that you could stay in cabin built in the 1930s in the remote Hamma Hamma area of the Olympic Peninsula for less than the average hotel room?
For $40-$60 a night, you can book a cabin for you and up to 5 friends on the border of the Olympic Peninsula’s Skokomish Wilderness. With Old Growth forests, rhododendrons, salmon stocked rivers and a plethora of trails, this is an ideal weekend getaway for your family, or a great ay to reconnect with old friends.
The cabin is one story tall with no electricity, but has two bedrooms, a kitchen nd, best of all, a flush toilet! Sadly, drinking water is not available, but you can easily stock up on gallons of water.
The cabin at Hamma Hamma may not be glamorous, but what it lacks in amenities it makes up for in location. I have provided two must hike trails in the area, but there are many more must see and do activities. SInce the cabin is so close to wilderness areas and the Olympic National Park, you can hike all day, watching birds, mountain goats and marmots and return to your cabin for a gorgeous night in cabin built by the Civilian Conservation Corps originally as a guard station and now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Staying in a Forest Service Cabin or a Lookout anywhere in the country is an honor and a rare, yet unique way to experience remote areas and really get a feel for how wild wilderness can be. I highly recommend staying here. It is a perfect way to start your family, friends or you out on a path to wanting to camp, hike and backpack across the Olympic Peninsula.
