The Vista House was constructed in 1933 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) as “an excellent example of the naturalistic design principles that the CCC inherited from the National Park Service” in which “stone and timber structures were meant to emerge from their surroundings as if they were expressions of the site”.1
The Vista House was renovated by the State Park in 2002. The lodge was completely renovated in 2002 and opened to the public. It is constructed of native granite stone and timber framing. The great stone fireplace is the center of the structure, beckoning visitors to enjoy a warm drink and put their feet up in front of the fire.
Hot beverages, soups, chili, and wraps are available when the Vista House is open on weekends and holidays.
