Located 8.5 miles east of Lincoln, Montana, Cummings Cabin is a historic structure, representative of the old mining cabins that dotted the countryside in the greater Lincoln area around 1910. The cabin has been determined eligible for inclusion to the National Register of Historic Places.

Today, the cabin is a rustic getaway for guests seeking relaxation and recreation in Helena National Forest. It is accessible by car, but guests should be prepared to travel part of the way on foot during times of snowfall. The cabin offers a few basic amenities; guests need to pack in most of their own supplies and gear.

Natural Features:

The cabin is tucked into a grassy clearing with old-growth conifer forest to one side.

The area around the cabin offers a variety of landscapes, from river banks to subalpine terrain. Valley bottoms, dense forests, meadows and barren ridges are mixed with streams, rivers, and lakes.

Wildlife in the area abounds, including the more common elk, mule and white-tailed deer, squirrel, black bear, and a variety of birds. The more elusive grizzly bear, badger, wolverine, mountain lion, and lynx find habitat here as well.


Recreationists can access numerous trails within a half hour drive of the cabin.

The nearby Blackfoot River ranks not only as one of the most scenic rivers in this part of Montana, but also one of the most heavily used. Excellent fly fishing for brown trout and rainbow trout is found throughout most of its length.

The cabin also offers winter recreation opportunities with cross-country skiing opportunities out the back door and nearby access to over 200 miles of groomed snowmobile trails.


The cabin is furnished with one double bed and two single beds, all with mattresses, and is able to accommodate up to four people. The kitchen is equipped with a table and chairs, and a wood stove.

An axe is available for splitting wood and firewood may be available on the front porch as well as in the old garage; however, it is not guaranteed. A vault toilet is on-site near the cabin.

The cabin does not have electricity or indoor plumbing. Guests need to bring their own light source. Water is available seasonally from a hand pump. If water is collected from the nearby stream, it should be treated prior to use.

Guests are advised to bring a camp stove, sleeping bags, linens, towels, dish soap, matches, first aid kit, toilet paper and garbage bags. All garbage must be packed out, and guests are expected to clean the cabin before leaving.

Nearby Attractions:

The cabin's close proximity to Lincoln allows visitors to experience the rich history of the area's historic mining district, including Stemple Pass.
