A partnership signed between Benton County and the Siuslaw National Forest will create a unique camping experience. The national forest recently approved a permit allowing Benton County Natural Areas and Parks to make improvements to a former fire guard station along the Alsea River and operate it as a rental cabin.

The Alsea Guard Station has historic significance as being the only Depression Era guard station remaining in the Siuslaw District.

The guard station’s location across from a county park with a boat ramp to the Alsea River makes the site particularly appealing.
