General info

This remote rangers cabin was built in 1926 and was at the heart of the Upper Ford Ranger District until 1942 when it was combined with the Yaak Ranger District and became a remote work center. By 1966 the last permanent resident abandoned the site due to sewer problems. This cabin contains 900 square feet, and sleeps 9 comfortably with room for extra supplies. It comes equipped with a propane stove, refrigerator and heater, one queen bed, 2 twin beds, 2 futon couches that fold down into a double bed and a futon chair that folds down into a single bed. A picnic syle table, bench and chairs are in the fully furnished kitchen with a table setting for 8, silverware, glasses and all the necessary kitchen tools and cleaning gear. The cabin is not wired for electricity or plumbed for water, and has an outdoor toilet. There are no potable water sources available at the cabin and all open water is considered contaminated. Open year round.
