Hamma Hamma Guard Station

Located just within the Olympic National Forest. The CCC-constructed Guard Station, completed in 1937, is available for rent year-round. A nature trail near the cabin meanders along the Hamma Hamma River, interspersed with signage interpreting the activity of the Civilian Conservation Corps in the area. The end of the road, is deep in the rugged country near the source of the river.

The Hamma Hamma River rises in the high country on the northwest side of Mt. Elinor. It flows east and southeast to Hood Canal at Eldon. The name is a greatly altered version of the Twana Native American name, Du-hub-hub-bai, which referred to a small rush called Hub-hub that was once plentiful along the river.
