Attention: As of April 18, 2014, the Coconino National Forest is in STAGE 1 fire restrictions. For our renters this means that there will be absolutely NO FIRES outside the cabins and this includes:

  • No open flame charcoal or wood BBQ grill - propane is ok
  • No use of the fire pit - monitored and strictly enforced
  • No smoking cigarettes outside or in the cabin - you may smoke inside your vehicle
  • Fires are permitted inside the cabin's wood stove - please consider strong evening winds and monitor the chimney for sparks

  • EXTREME fire danger means that any little hot ash, spark or flame will ignite grasses and or dry plant material. Parking over high grass can also lead to fire. You will be in an extremely isolated location which contains lots of flammable material. For your protection, our fire patrols will monitor these areas to ensure compliance with the fire restrictions; nighttime patrols and over-flights have been authorized. This summer is expected to be one of the driest summers on record and we need your help to safeguard against a wild land fire!

    Kendrick Cabin offers groups of up to 10 people the chance to experience spectacular mountain views, numerous hiking and mountain biking trails, and several cultural and historic attractions of the Southwest region. The rustic, three-bedroom masonry and wood cabin is a retired U.S. Forest Service fire guard station constructed in the 1960s. It lies just minutes from downtown Flagstaff and about an hour from the world-famous Grand Canyon National Park.

    Kendrick Cabin is located approximately 22 miles north of Flagstaff, in central Arizona. The site is typically accessible year-round, however, it may not be accessible in deep snow. All roads are suitable for a sedan except during winter months. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

    Natural Features:

    The cabin is located at an elevation of 7,910 feet, in the scenic Kendrick Park area at the base of the 12,000-ft. San Francisco Peaks, the remains of an old volcano. From the facility, visitors have wonderful views of the peaks, Kendrick Mountain and the surrounding forest, as well as the night sky on clear nights.

    The area is home to elk, deer, antelope, fox, coyotes, mountain lions, numerous birds and other animals.


    The Flagstaff area is a hub for hiking and mountain biking in warmer months and skiing in the winter. Dozens of trails are within a short drive of the cabin, including the scenic Kendrick Mountain Trail and several trails on the San Francisco Peaks. Bikes and off-road vehicles are allowed only on designated roads and trails.

    Families and photographers can enjoy a morning or evening walk along the Kendrick Park Watchable Wildlife Trail, which is adjacent to the cabin. Hunting is also available in many nearby areas within the Coconino national forest.


    The multiple-room, two-story cabin is equipped with propane lights, a propane stovetop range, small refrigerator, dining area with a table and chairs, and a wood stove. Furniture includes one double bed in the downstairs bedroom and two twin beds in each of the two upstairs bedrooms. Kitchen supplies include pots, pans, utensils, dishes, a coffee pot and can opener.

    A grill, campfire ring, picnic table and bathhouse with a flush toilet and shower are located outside, not far from the cabin. The cabin has an accessible ramp to the front porch, providing wheelchair access to the main floor of the house and one bedroom. The bath house is accessible, however, the path from the house to the bathhouse is not. The cabin provides running water from mid-May to mid-October; at other times, users must bring their own. The Forest Service supplies propane for cooking and lights (click here for more cabin details).

    Guests must bring their own bedding (or sleeping bags) for one double bed, two queen futons and four single beds, as well as flashlights, towels, garbage bags, warm clothes, dish soap, dish towels, an axe or saw for splitting wood, and matches and newspaper for starting fires in the wood stove. Lawn chairs are not provided, but can be toted along for sitting outdoors in the summer months.

    Nearby Attractions:

    The nearby city of Flagstaff is a popular stop along historic U.S. Route 66 and offers plenty of restaurants, museums, shops and an astronomical observatory.

    Guests can also drive 58 miles to the Grand Canyon National Park's scenic South Rim.
