The Skokomish people in the eyes of their neighbors were referred to us the people who resided with the monster. There is no fact up to date that substantiates this and it could still remain to be a myth. But, well myths are there to be believed or not. The name Twana in itself is fresh water, a descriptive feature of the place and true to that.
The other good feature about this place is the fishers are back. A recent research found out that the fishers which were long gone in these woods are back. Just picture seeing a fisher in this place and for sure you would not hold back going to Staircase.

You might also need to know how the name came about. Cushman, a translator to Isaac Stevens in Treaty of Point Elliot, was honored with the naming of this lake after him. The local Washington natives, Twanas, however had a different name to this place that did not formalize.

You could go with your Jet Ski or mountaineer. There is an array of activities you could get into. This place is ideal for family, couples and group events.
