c.1978

c.1980
The 1979 USGS topo map depicted a single 3,600' runway, which actually was somewhat curved as it followed the narrow slice of land in between Route 215 and the west bank of the Pigeon River. The airfield was not labeled at all. Champion International paper company (since absorbed by International Paper) had a fishing retreat called Lake Logan. At some point they built a very narrow paved strip with a sort of cul-de-sac at one end for turning around. It was completely surrounded by huge pine trees, and it is said the company pilot threatened to quit if he had to keep flying in there. No airfield at this location was depicted on the 1980 Sectional Aeronautical Chart. The site of the Lake Logan Airfield was located on the east side of Route 215, just south of Lake Logan.
