- General info
This is a small, primitive, one-room cabin and is equipped with two sets of bunk beds with mattress pads that can sleep up to four people. It has a small table and chairs and a few pots for heating water. There is a wood stove for heat and firewood is provided but cannot be guaranteed. A shared outhouse with a vault toilet is nearby and a small dispersed camping area is a few hundred yards from the cabin. A seasonally available hand pump for drinking water, a picnic table, and a fire pit are also outside. Guests will need to bring their own sleeping bags and pillows, as well as matches, food, toilet paper, propane stove, and garbage bags. There is very limited cell phone service available unless you gain elevation or go back toward Highway 1. Guests are asked to replenish the supply of split wood and kindling, pack out all trash and food, and clean the cabin prior to leaving. There is a fenced pasture for horses next to the cabin but you must check the fence for damage before using it. Do not corral your horses on the cabin grounds.
The cabin is located about 24 miles southwest of Philipsburg, Montana. From Philipsburg, drive 6 miles south on Highway 1 to the junction with Montana Highway 38 (Skalkaho Highway). Turn right and drive west for 9 miles until it meets Forest Road #5106, the Middle Fork Road. Turn left and continue another 9 miles to the Moose Lake Station. Up to 1/4 mile of snowmobile or ski travel may be required in winter.
