- General info
This cabin is located off Forest Service Road #138 in the Big Belt Mountains. The present Indian Flats Cabin started its days as the Conway Station on Rock Creek in the Jim Ball Basin. The original Conway Station probably predates the Forest Service. This station was used as a way-station for rangers headquartered at the Checkerboard Ranger Station located above the town of Nelson. The present cabin was built on the same location in 1944 and in 1969 it was relocated to its present location below Indian Flats. In 1992 and 1993 the cabin was remodeled to accommodate use in the Forest Service rental program. There are four beds with mattresses, a table, and four chairs, cabinets, drawers, a woodstove, and a cookstove. Also available are gas lanterns, silverware, dishes, cooking utensils, pots and pans, firewood, axe, shovel, and cleaning supplies are also provided. Bring your own drinking water (or treat or boil water from local sources); sleeping bags, warm clothes; food, propane fuel for Coleman lantern and stove, and a flashlight.
