The Pemberton Wildlife Association (PWA) and many Pemberton community volunteers re-built the historic Tenquille Cabin in 2011. For the first decade, the cabin was self-managed by users and a group of dedicated volunteers from the PWA - cabin maintenance, installation of urine diverting toilets, countless hours of trail building and maintenance, building tent sites - are all the work of Pemberton volunteers. The PWA takes great pride in what the volunteers have built, as our guest please show appreciation for their hard work by respecting the Rec Site and Cabin, the surrounding area and those who share the cabin with you.
The Tenquille Cabin is a Special Place!
Please RESPECT the Cabin & Facilities Provided for You! Pack Out Everything You Packed In - Leave No Trace
