The upper area of the French Creek watershed is in the congressionally designated Russian Wilderness, a premier recreation destination. Land in the lower portion of the watershed is managed primarily for timber production.
In addition to numerous private residences, the J H Guest Ranch is located in the heart of the watershed and is an outdoor school, covering 360 acres, with a full service lodge, living quarters, and training areas.
