The Merced Grove Ranger Station in Yosemite National Park was designed by the National Park Service and completer in 1935. An example of the National Park Service Rustic style, it features log construction. The station is near the Merced Grove of giant sequoias, in the Crane Flat region of the park.[2]

The building consists of a living room, bedroom, and kitchen. Outside and up a hill to the north of the cabin is 2 small outhouses. The structure was employed for a time as a summer retreat for Yosemite park superintendents.[3]
