Destroyed Inholder  Private Elwha Recreational Sites

Frankie White Called me from Oregon yesterday. She owned one of the 134 INHOLDER private Elwha Recreational lots 25 years ago when it was destroyed by ONP. She called it the FLOOD.

The NPS/ONP gave Frankie three choices on her private property.

  1. Sell you lot to us now for full appraised value.
  2. Sell it to us now, use it for 5 years and we will give you 1/2 of the appraised value.
  3. DO NOTHING and we will take it by immanent domain.

The White family had enjoyed the ONP private Inholder campsite for 14 years.

My Dad, George C. Rains Sr. told her not to sell, that the ONP could not take it.

Their family did not have money to fight. They did not know HOW to fight the ONP.

They were afraid, they didn’t know what to do, and they sold their site to ONP.

Frankie said, “I cried and cried, BUT THE ONP LEFT US NO CHOICE, so we sold it to them”

————————————————————–

Jack Del Gussi, John H. Lewis and I created the finest recreational campground facilities the Elwha River has ever known. We subdivided and developed campsites with underground electric power, water system and good roads and restrooms.

In the course of our development I noticed a small breach through a narrow strip of land on the south of the big island which is owned by the park. I could foresee a lot of damage if something was not done to protect our property below and the Olympic Hot Springs Road.

I contacted Del Hur Industries to get an estimate on what it would cost to plug the breach and put a small rock dike to prevent further damage to our property and the road.

After getting an estimate I contacted the park people and they would do nothing to help remedy the situation. I also offered to provide free of cost all rip rap from our rock quarry on Little River.

The problem was ignored. Finally sometime later the river came up high enlarging the breach, washing out a section of the Olympic Hot Springs Road and cut a channel through our development and took out our bridge……

To this day they have done nothing to remedy the threat and a good portion of our property was destroyed through their sheer negligence. The National Park has no respect  for private property rights and ownership.

MAR 29, 2017  To this day they have done nothing to remedy the threat to the Olympic Hot Spring Road, our access to our inholder property is gone and a good portion of our property is still being destroyed through their sheer negligence. The National Park has no respect  for private property rights and ownership.
