Elk Lake Guard Station

An old U.S. Forest Service guard station off the Cascade Lakes Highway is now federally recognized as a piece of history. 

The Elk Lake Guard Station is now on the National Register of Historic Places, meaning its officially a place worthy of preservation.

According to the Deschutes National Forest, the log cabin was built nearly a century ago and served as a base for a forest guard.
