OverviewThe Antone Cabin sits in a beautiful open meadow, at the edge of a thick forest, providing visitors with a unique camping experience in the mountains of southwestern Montana. The cabin opens for use in mid-summer and stays open through March, as it is most popular during hunting season.
In addition to hunting access, the facility provides ample opportunities for hiking, backpacking and horseback riding, as well as winter sports, such as snowmobiling and cross country skiing.
During most winter months, the cabin can be accessed by snowmobile, depending on conditions. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities to really enjoy their stay at Antone Cabin.
The historic log cabin is located along the grassy foothills at the southern end of the Snowcrest Range, at an elevation of 8,100 feet. Together with the nearby Gravelly Range, the area is one of Montana's most popular hunting grounds.
A variety of hiking, backpacking and horseback riding trails extend into the Snowcrest Range, including the Snowcrest Trail, which covers the entire range, providing panoramic views. The 40-mile trail can serve as the means for a hearty horseback adventure, a lengthy backpacking trip, or make for several day trips into the wilderness.
The cabin is a small, primitive, one-room log cabin, equipped with bunk beds that sleep up to two people, a table and chairs. The cabin has a loft, but it is not available for public use, due to safety regulations.
