Status: Open through Tue Dec 31 2013 Season Dates
OverviewBloody Dick Cabin is a small, wood frame cabin, nestled deep in the evergreens near Reservoir Lake in southwestern Montana, and is available year-round. The cabin is popular among winter sports enthusiasts, as the nearby lake freezes and provides terrific ice fishing possibilities. A variety of trails in the area are also great for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. There is also plenty for guests to do during the rest of the year, including hiking, mountain biking and fishing in the nearby spring-fed creek.
The cabin is typically accessible by vehicle, however some portions are gravel, dirt and rock, making it rough in places. Snow conditions could limit mobility in the area. Depending on the route, renters may need to travel up to 23 miles by snowmobile or skis to reach the cabin. Renters are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin is located deep in an evergreen forest, about 25 miles south of Jackson, Montana. It is situated next to Bloody Dick Creek at an elevation of about 7,100 feet. The creek is fed by cold water springs in the area. A variety of shorebirds can be seen near the winding creek and plenty of wildlife and small critters make their home in the area as well.
Fishing is available in Bloody Dick Creek, as well as on nearby Reservoir Lake, where non-motorized boats are welcome. Anglers might catch a variety of trout, including rainbow and brown trout, mountain whitefish.
The small, one-room cabin can sleep up to four people and has two bunkbeds with mattresses. A table and chairs, small wood burning stove and a propane cook stove are provided, as well as cooking and eating utensils, an axe, shovel, bucket, cleaning equipment and firewood.
