General info

The cabin is furnished with tables, chairs, and enough beds with mattresses to accommodate 11 people (most are bunk beds). A propane lantern, propane two-burner cookstove, wood cookstove, and wood heat stove are also provided. FIREWOOD IS NOT AVAILABLE FROM JUNE 1ST TO SEPTEMBER 30TH. PLEASE BRING FIREWOOD OR GATHER FROM FOREST DURING SUMMER. DO NOT BURN PROVIDED FIREWOOD FOR OUTDOOR FIRES, EVER, AS IT IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO REPLACE. Firewood is available during winter months as long as supplies last. An ax and a splitting maul should be available. A mop and bucket are provided for cleaning the cabin. A corral is located across from the cabin, with room for six stock animals. A campfire ring and outhouse with vault toilet are just outside. Water and electricity are not available. Guests will need to bring their own water supply. Propane fuel for the lantern is not provided, so it may be necessary to bring extra propane or battery-operated lanterns or flashlights. Garbage bags are needed to pack out trash. For a comfortable stay, guests should bring a propane canister for the lantern and stove, flashlight, bedding, cookware, dishes, utensils, newspaper, garbage bags, matches, toilet paper, and first aid kit. Guests are expected to pack out all trash and clean the cabin and the stock corral (if used) before leaving.

This Forest Service cabin sits on the Big Creek where fishing can be enjoyed.
