The Rock Creek Ranger Station Historic District is eligible for listing in the NRHP under Criterion A for its association with administrative activities of the Forest Service from 1925 to 1962. Although the property's history dates to 1908, no physical evidence from this time remains. Ranger district headquarters are representative of USDA Forest Service management policies and of the aesthetics that guided the agency's improvements program. It is also eligible for listing under Criterion C for its collection of Rustic style buildings and structures, the majority of which are of log or wood frame construction and represent standard plans developed by the Forest Service in the mid-1930s.
