OverviewKings Hill Cabin, perched on Kings Hill Pass, presents the opportunity to stay in a historic log cabin built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. The hideaway is very quiet, with minimal highway noise. Open year-round, the cabin provides access to a mix of recreation activities like birding, hiking, snowboarding and off-road vehicle riding.
Access to cabin is on an easy-to-drive paved road. However, visitors should expect to hike 100 yards from a parking area to the cabin in winter months.
The cabin sits just 100 yards off the highway in a deep woods setting of lodgepole pine, at an elevation of 7,600 feet. Showdown Mountain is to the west, and Kings hill is to the south. Both Sheep and Belt Creeks flow nearby.
Small and big game hunting are popular in the area. Hiking trails are nearby and and wildlife watching is a pleasing activity.
The two-room cabin accommodates up to six guests and provides electricity. Amenities include lights, a refrigerator and a stove. A wood stove and firewood are provided. The bedroom is furnished with three bunk beds. The kitchen has a dining table and chairs, pots, pans and dishes. A vault toilet is located outside for year-round use.
Groceries and fuel can be found in White Sulphur Springs, a 28.5-mile drive from the cabin.
