Recreation Residence Self-Inspections

In many areas, such as the Naches District,  the FS has shifted to periodic spot-checks when time allows or when a cabin is changing hands—making it even more important to complete and turn in the self-inspection form they request each year.

All permit administrators or district rangers use Form FS-2700-6b, the Recreation Residence Self Inspection Report, as the foundation of the report and adapt for local conditions and permit terms. Typically, the local FS office will mail a copy of the self-inspection form to the permittee’s address of record in the late spring and request it be completed and returned by the end of summer. This will provide you with a good reason to visit your cabin this weekend and get your report filed in a timely manner.

I am encouraging you to fill out form  FS 2700-6b and send it to:

or mail it to:
Lenna Cherry, Resource Specialist 
10237 US Hwy 12
Naches, WA. 98937

The reasons are simple:

  • Keeps your cabin safe and in repair.
  • It ensures you are in compliance with your permit terms.
