Fremont Point Cabin is located on top of the Winter Rim in North Central Lake County, Oregon. The newly constructed cabin, which was completed in the summer of 2015, sits on the same footprint as its predecessor, which was destroyed during a forest fire in 2002. Through numerous donations of funding, materials, and volunteer labor, the cabin has been rebuilt and is now ready for you to enjoy. While the cabin is available year-round, off season access may be limited to foot or snowmobile depending on weather conditions, as the roads are not maintained in the winter.
Recreational activities within close proximity of Fremont Point Cabin include horseback riding, wildlife viewing and photography, mountain biking, OHV riding, hunting, fishing, kayaking and boating. Numerous trails including the Fremont National Recreation Trail and Oregon Timber Trail are also nearby.
The large two-sided deck provides ample room to sit, relax and enjoy the vistas. Inside, the cabin contains one set of bunk beds (two twins) and one queen-size bed. There is room for additional sleeping arrangements, which guests must provide. Also included in the cabin are an LP Range Top, refrigerator, several LP lamps, and a wood stove for heat, firewood is available at the cabin. A newly constructed vault toilet is available next to the cabin. The closest convenience store is a 45 minute drive one-way; so visitors are reminded to bring their own water, bedding, and any other necessary items for their stay.
Poised on the edge of an escarpment at almost 3,000 feet above Summer Lake, Fremont Point Cabin offers a breathtaking view of the valley below. Due to the remoteness of this site, visitors can enjoy the opportunity for personal reflection while watching a variety of weather patterns across Summer Lake.
The panoramic view from the edge of the Winter Rim is amazing. And, the National Recreational Trail which skirts along the escarpment edge provides an endless number of opportunities to view the valley below. A short hike west from the cabin finds a totally different ecosystem, thriving with large ponderosa and lodge pole pine. Thirty minutes to the south are the headwaters for the Wild and Scenic Sycan River, which is an easy day hike on the historic Hanan Trail from the developed trailhead on FSR 28.
