Crooked Creek Station

Open from about June 1 – October 31 (weather and snow permitting). Crooked Creek Station is a beautiful log cabin style building, which now operates off grid by utilizing solar power. This station is located in the Bristlecone/Limber Pine Forest at 3090 m (10,150’) in the White Mountains. Crooked Creek is an ideal facility in which to teach field classes, conduct research, and to hold workshops and retreats. Housing is seasonal. CCR can sleep up to 40 people in dorms and cabins. It has an industrial kitchen and the WMRC cooks at Crooked Creek provide excellent meals. CCR has wireless internet, a small computer room, four dry labs and an outdoor campfire pit.
