Constructed in 1933 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the cabin welcomes guests to experience the rustic getaway with impressive scenery.

Natural Features

Nestled in a mountain valley at 6,900 feet in elevation, the cabin is perched near a creek that flows into Little Greys River. Pines line the hillsides, but no trees are near enough to offer natural shade to the cabin complex. Deer, moose, elk, eagles and sandhill cranes are among the wildlife likely to be seen. An abundance of wildflowers color the landscape in summer. The Bridger-Teton National Forest offers more than 3.4 million acres of public lands for outdoor recreation. With its pristine watersheds, abundant wildlife and immense wildlands, the forest comprises a large part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the largest intact ecosystem in the lower 48 states.
