One the nicer ones on June Lake

Walter Lantz spent many days creating the Woody Woodpecker character. Gracie and Walter owned the cabin from 1968 to 1995 and it was her unique laughter that was the inspiration for Woody Woodpecker.

Take a look, anyone have one of these on USFS Land?
There a number for sale as long as its not your primary spot looks like a lot of fun for 20 years at a time.

Example in So cal

Beautiful country out there, one of my favorite spots in the world, however I am incredibly poor therefore will continue to enjoy to free national forest camping ⛺️ instead of spending $350K on a cabin u can only access 4 months a year

Lol and leased land? 😂

Yea it's a 20-year permit. The program has been around since 1915. People just getting more and more serious with the things they build.

Reco me a lake in the southwestern USA with camping/popup trailer and water/boat access? thx

I saw a small cabin type place like that in Mokeloumne (sp?) Hill, CA for sale for around 200k. It had 9 acres. This was about a year ago. It's super pretty up there, and a short distance from Sacramento.

Good friend had one in big bear on forest service land. Was a great little party house but the title not being fee simple made it a PITA when it came time to sell.

That would be the ideal spot close to home in so cal and away from it all..
I think people cant think of it as a normal second home more like an object

that seems like a terrible deal :o

so you're pretty much getting a 20 year lease on the house? what happens at the end of the lease? how much does it cost to re-up?

350k can buy you a lot of airbnb stays and camping gear :o

@borazhasleftthebuilding Is there anything worth seeing or doing where you live for a couple with small kids? Have nothing to do for the next 2 weeks and want to go on a road trip, but have no idea where...
Short answer not in winter

Longer answer not for Free, my Timothy ski hill is open it'll be no crowds compared to your local mountains

Can't think of anything else

It's all lakes and fishing and hiking and gold panning...all no-go in winter
