Camp Details:

The Muddy Guard cabin was built in the late 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps for the use of the Forest Service as a guard station. The cabin is made out of peeled logs with saddle corner notching. The cabin is situated in a large open meadow 1/2 mile east of US HWY 16 on Forest Service road 473, just west of Crazy Woman Road. In the winter FS 473 is not plowed, renter may need to park at the plowed parking area on Crazy Woman Road (FS 33), and ski or snowshoe the 1/2 mile to the cabin. The cabin has three rooms - a kitchen and two bedrooms. One bedroom has two bunk bed sets, and the other has a double bed. The kitchen has an electric cooking stove, a wood stove, small refrigerator, and a grey water sink.
