Overview

Overview

Atlanta Cabin is located in the old mining town of Atlanta, Idaho, at an elevation of 5,800 feet. It is part of a historic ranger station compound built by the Civilian Conservation Corps and the Forest Service in 1933. This compound, known as the Atlanta Ranger Station Historic District, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The roads to the cabin are generally well-maintained, although there are some rough washboard sections. Guests can drive to the cabin, but should check local conditions prior to arrival, since inclement weather may make accessing the cabin difficult. Atlanta Cabin offers many creature comforts so guests can have an enjoyable stay.

Natural Features:

The cabin is surrounded by a grassy meadow and lodgepole pines. The front porch offers great views of the edge of the Sawtooth Wilderness and 9,363' Greylock Mountain.

The Middle Fork Boise River is about a quarter-mile away. Several natural hot springs are in the area, including Atlanta, Powerplant and Chattanooga. This area is a favorite of wildlife watchers, who may see mule deer, Rocky Mountain elk, chukars, wild turkeys, eagles and the occasional black bear or wolf.

Recreation:

The Middle Fork Boise River Trail and the Powerplant Trail begin nearby, offering great opportunities for hiking and horseback riding. Off-road enthusiasts will find many trails to explore. Click here for an Idaho OHV safety message.

The Middle Fork Boise River provides excellent trout fishing. Big game hunting is another popular pastime in the area. Guests can also soak in the nearby hot springs.

Facilities:

The cabin is equipped with a modern plumbing system and electricity. It can accommodate up to four people with one set of bunk beds and two single beds with mattresses. The couch also folds out into a bed.

The kitchen has a sink with hot water, a table with chairs, a propane stove and a propane refrigerator. The indoor bathroom features a flush toilet, sink and shower. A broom and dustpan are provided.

Propane wall heaters keep the cabin warm. A wood stove is also provided, but it is not always available for use. A picnic table, fire ring and pedestal grill are located behind the cabin.

Bedding, pillows and towels are not available. Guests should be prepared to wash the dishes and tidy up the cabin before leaving.

Nearby Attractions:

The town of Atlanta has a colorful history with interesting buildings and streets to explore. It was settled in the 1860s during a gold and silver rush, and visitors can still see remnants of this period. The local watering hole offers a chance to eat out and play pool or shuffleboard.
