Camp Details:

The Cold Springs Peak Cabin is a primitive log cabin that was originally constructed in 1931 to shelter firefighters and other work crews. It was last used for firefighters in 1953. In 1989, forest Service employees shored up the cabin's foundation, re-shingled its roof, and installed a stove. Today, the 12'x14' cabin qualifies for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. Cold Springs Peak Cabin sits on a mountain. Nearly vertical cliffs rise to the east, practically to its doorstep. Visitors will enjoy breathtaking views of the Bitterroot Mountains, and you can fish at several lakes located within an hour's hike from the cabin. Many trails in the area offer plenty of hiking opportunities.
