WALL CREEK CABIN, MT
Status: Closed through Sun May 11 2014 Season Dates
OverviewWall Creek Cabin is a small dwelling that gives guests access to prime elk and deer viewing. The cabin is near a major wildlife refuge and herds can often be seen wandering nearby. It is typically open to the public from mid-May through November, offering ample opportunity to explore southwestern Montana.
The facility was a ranger station until the 1940s. There are three log buildings at the site, including the small cabin, a barn and a main house, which is used by grazing permit holders. Only the cabin is available for public use.
The site can easily be accessed by vehicle and is open during late spring through early fall. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin is located on the edge of the Madison River Valley and the Gravelly Mountains at an elevation of 6,150 feet. It sits in an open, grassy area backed by forested slopes.
Big game hunting is by far the most popular activity enjoyed by visitors to the cabin. The area and surrounding wilderness is thick with wildlife. Hunters must have appropriate licensure to hunt in the state of Montana, and hunting is only allowed in designated areas. The surrounding meadow is ideal for practicing archery. Wildlife viewing is popular, as animals often come near the cabin.
The primitive cabin is small, with a single room and an enclosed porch. It is equipped with two sets of bunk beds with foam pads that can sleep up to four people. Other amenities include a propane cook stove, propane lantern, table and chairs, cleaning supplies, basic cooking utensils, cooking pots and a wood stove for heat.
