PORT ANGELES, WA: The park awarded a $2,220,924 construction contract to Advanced Technology Construction from Tacoma, WA to replace eight guest cabins and construct a new manager’s residence at Log Cabin Resort at Lake Crescent.
The deteriorated guest cabins were likely constructed in the 1930s and many of them came from other resorts that previously operated around the lake. The new cabins will be constructed from log cabin kits. Two of the cabins will meet ADA/ABA Guidelines for persons with disabilities. An ADA/ABA compliant trail will connect the cabins with all the primary activities at the resort. Four of the cabins will have kitchenettes. The project also includes road, parking, and utility improvements associated with the new cabins.
The new guest cabins and manager’s residence project is funded by concession franchise fees. Concession franchise fees are a percentage of the concessioner’s annual revenue that is returned to the park and support concession operations. The park utilized concession franchise fees to complete other projects at Log Cabin Resort over the last few years including upgrading the RV campground, improving accessibility at Log Cabin Lodge, constructing a restroom building adjacent to the dock for day users, expanding the day use parking lot, and demolishing the manager’s residence. New boat docks were constructed through grant funding and concession franchise fees. The park also installed a new water tank with seismic upgrades. Future plans include a new wastewater treatment plant.
Log Cabin Resort closed for the season on September 30, 2017. Project work is now underway including the demolition of the deteriorated guest cabins. The work at Log Cabin Resort will last six months with the new guest cabins scheduled to be complete and operational when the resort opens for the 2018 season in late May.
Aramark Corporation was awarded a ten-year concession contract to operate Log Cabin Resort in October 2013. In the contract the park committed to replacing the eight guest cabins and manager’s residence.
