About Carol

A Washington State native, I am. I grew up in Grays Harbor County the daughter of a logger. Many of my early years were spent in the woods and along the creeks in the area. Husband Jim, was a transplant from North Dakota, at the age of 10, finally settling in Southwest WA, on a farm on Cedar Creek. Lake Cushman and the surrounding pristine forests met our criteria for a 'Home Away From Home'- We are choosing to share our 'CAMP WOLF' so you too can enjoy it, with your family & friends.

Carol purchased this cabin in 1997

Why Carol chose Lake Cushman

We stumbled upon this unique mountain property in the Summer of 1997. A handshake over the phone, helped us secure the deal.

Our family has enjoyed many memorable experiences, as we have explored beautiful Lake Cushman by boat, snorkel and water sport activities.

What makes this cabin unique

Go ahead, come to camp. Forget your troubles and step into a carefree time you have only dreamed of experiencing lately, in this fast paced life.

Go ahead, lay back in the comfy hammock and listen to the tumbling waters just below in the ravine.

Go ahead, grab a cozy sweater and ask someone to join you on the glider swing as you look down into the canyon below and take in the beauty of your surroundings.

Go ahead, enjoy making S'mores as the glowing embers of the campfire keep you toasty. Be sure and glance up at the heavens to see the brightly lit stars as they glisten in the nighttime sky. Night has come the evening invites you inside to play one last game together, before you get into your beds and ponder the day while planning your tomorrows.

Good Night, Jon Boy.

Grandma, is that big bear really dead?

Yes, it is - Go to sleep now.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your cabin is so well appointed and had everything and more that we could have ever needed. We felt so comfortable & really appreciated the memory foam on the bed. I think I slept my first 8 hours in a very long time.

I am already scheming on how & when we can make it back.

The BEST vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I are world travellers and we have also taken our young children (6 and 8) on many trips throughout the country. My 6 year old wrote me a letter the last day of our trip and stated that this was the best trip of her entire life and I would have to agree! It was something straight out of a Disney movie. We showed up all hooked to our electronics yet left hooked to each other! There is no cell or internet service in or near the cabin. We couldn't get service unless in the town of Hoodsport. It was great :) We had many hikes planned for our trip but ended up spending the entire time in the cabin or at the lake.

The cabin is very clean and well maintained. The 2 bathrooms was a huge plus. The grill worked great as well as all of the appliances. we enjoyed playing the boardgames in the cabin as well as using the many toys! The hammock and swing were very relaxing at the end of the day. There are also 2 bikes if you're feeling up to it. We practically had the private lake to ourselves. It was so peaceful and quiet. Be sure to go to Hoodsport and have some ice cream....we went every day :)

Thanks so much for allowing us to use your cabin. I have already started referring you to my friends! We'll definitely be back for more great times!

It was heartwarming to hear that your 6 year old said that this was "the best trip of her life". We are so happy to be able to share our little cabin, so that families can come stay and play, together.
Thank You, for choosing Camp Wolf, and your kind words.
Happy Travels,
Carol & Jim

From the moment we arrived we knew this would be a terrific spot for our family of 7! The place was spotless and perfectly decorated for our cabin stay. The kids spread out upstairs with plenty of space and everything we needed was there. Carol was kind enough to let us know the best places to go boating and hiking. Gorgeous rainforest hike south of Hoodsport and we enjoyed Staircase on our last day. We would definitely recommend this spot for any size family. A gem.

Owner's Response: Kathleen,
It sounds like you found a lot of fun places to visit, in the area.
It truly is a wonderful place to take an active family. We have been able to explore many beautiful trails in the area. The lake is a real treat with it's cool waters, on a hot Summer Day. "Go jump in the lake" takes on a whole new meaning, why not come to Camp Wolf and try it yourself?

Quaint and Fun Cabin in the Woods

  • 4 of 5
The cabin is just as described, quaint and quiet! The only issue we had was a dripping shower upstairs and the fireplace doesn't work but we didn't need it. Great location across from the lake too. Be aware if you're not from the area you have to buy 3 separate passes to use the parks nearby: a National Park pass, a Northwest Forest pass and a Discovery pass. We had an excellent time and would certainly recommend for anyone who enjoys the peace and quiet.

Owner's Response: Thank You for your review Cristine. We are aware of the shower dripping problem, and the fireplace needing a new part to get it up and running again, these repairs are scheduled for the first week in July. I choose not to have the gas and water turned off while we had guests staying at Camp Wolf. The gas grill burner broke recently-so that is why we got the brand new Stainless Grill for our valued guests.
Hope you got to use the beautiful parks that Lake Cushman has to offer-Free to all our guests, by just using the hanging placard we provided for you. Div. 1 Park at mile marker 7 has swimming areas, children's play ground , great docks and trails to enjoy. Lake Kokanee Park near the Lake Cushman Grocery at about the 5 mile marker has large Rainbow Trout that are planted each Spring. We even have 3 fishing poles for your use at the cabin. Basketball and volleyball courts as well as horseshoe area make for a fun day for all. Again, we always try to take good care of our guests, and to make Camp Wolf fun for all ages.

Fantastic Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Camp Wolf. The cabin was clean, in excellent condition, and well appointed with nice decor. The location is perfect right accross from the lake and the lake is very beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on the front deck and on the swing and relaxing to the sound of the creek right next to the cabin. We could hear the sound of the creek at night with the windows open too. Olympic National Park Staircase area is just a few minutes up the road with excellent hiking and scenery.

Carol was an excellent host and called us at the cabin on the first day to make sure everything was great with the cabin.

I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get away for a few days or a few weeks. We only stayed a week but we wished we could have stayed a lot longer. Our 18 month old son had the time of his life and was always smiling and laughing.

Owner's Response: So happy that you could bring your family to Camp Wolf, and experience the beauty of the area. We enjoy sharing our little cabin with others. We love Lake Cushman, with it's crystal clear water and all other little lakes tucked away in the mountains. It is fun to hike the trails along the creeks and rivers in such splendid surroundings. Enjoy your pictures and remember to come back, to find even more new treasures.

Great cabin. Great getaway.

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for sharing your wonderful cabin with us. It had absolutely everything we needed and more! We took the crab/oyster bucket and went down to Eagle Creek (just outside of Lilliwaup) and got oysters. The tools were in the bucket. Great time. Thanks again.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you found those marvelous oyster beds, across from the Eagle Creek Tavern. It always amazes me when I see all of those oysters lying on the beach, at low tide. That's the secret-be sure and watch the tides or you will not get those wonderful oysters, free for the picking.
PS- Don't forget your shellfish licenses.

It was all good!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed a three day mini-vacation, and we couldn't have picked a better spot.

Our only regret is that we didn't have a bunch of kids to share this with! The upstairs loft could have slept 10-12 people alone, with all the beds and cushions they had up there! That would be a cousins haven for sure. And a bathroom up there too, with shower.

Betty is as friendly as can be, and made it easy for us to feel welcome and at home. After we paid, she sent the key and community tag, and directions/instructions, so we were all set to go.

The cabin is so adorable and cozy, with all the comforts of home. We loved all the animals skins and fishing decor, and the master bed was very comfortable.

We especially liked the seclusion of it. There was a small house on one side, but it didn't seem like the people were there, and on the other side was a creek down a ravine. We enjoyed a campfire, grilled some steaks on the nice BBQ on the back porch, and made a Nutella S'more--yummy! The private beach and dock was very close, and we took their canoe out on the Lake, on a calm morning, and I just can't describe how incredibly peaceful and wonderful that was. We fished a bit, but didn't try very hard, and preferred paddling back after the wind picked up a bit. The mountain surrounding the lake are just breathtaking. A great spot for prayer and meditation for sure.

We LOVED the hike near the Staircase Entrance, in Olympic National Park, and the new suspension bridge near the Ranger Station. Don't miss that! The two mile hike was just perfect for us non-athlete types. If you are planning to scale Mt. Elinor, this is pretty close to that trailhead, I believe.

We enjoyed exploring the neighborhoods by car, and nearby Hoodsport, with all it's charm. There's many gift shops, and IGA, restaurants and a wine tasting room.

My husband and I even made our own "reality show" video one night. He likes the "Finding Bigfoot" show, but mostly because it seems so silly. So we acted out our own episode out back. We just might have to post it on YouTube. Doing that reminded me of summer camp as a kid--so fun! (we never do stuff like that at home.)

We didn't try out the hammock, the bikes, the tub or the old-time stovetop popcorn popper. We'll have to do that next time!

Even though the weather wasn't the best, we had the BEST time, and the Wolf cabin made it possible. We thank God, and the Wolf family. God bless you, and happy trails.

Owner's Response: Cristina,

Sounds to me like you two had a great time at Camp Wolf and truly enjoyed yourselves! That is what we like to hear. I can hardly wait to go and see the new bridge over the river! Thanks for sharing your experiences; we look forward to your return visits! Carol & Jim

Map

Only 5 miles to Staircase Campground in Olympic National Park with catch and release river fishing and hiking. Mt. Rose and Mt. Ellinor are in the area. Bring a motor boat for touring pristine Lake Cushman. We have a canoe and a rowboat for use by responsible renters, over the age of 25, who must accompany their guests.
