Overview

Overview

Squirrel Meadows Cabin is located 24 miles East of Ashton, Idaho, just off the Ashton-Flagg Ranch Road. The current cabin was built in 1934, but the site has been used for administrative purposes since 1907. It's listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Only one other cabin in Wyoming was constructed with the same building plan. The 2-room cabin is made of lodgepole pine and features a galvanized roof, which was installed over the original wood shingles at a later date.

Guests can drive to the cabin in warmer weather. The last 10 miles are gravel roads which can only be accessed by skis, snowshoes or snowmobiles from approximately December through mid-May. The cabin provides many creature comforts for an enjoyable stay, but guests will have to bring some of their own gear and supplies.

Natural Features:

Squirrel Meadows Cabin is situated at 6,500 feet on the Yellowstone Plateau of southwest Wyoming. The cabin sits in a meadow surrounded by pine trees. Guests can enjoy views of the distant mountains.

Wildlife in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest includes black bear, wolf, elk, moose, mule deer, bison, grizzly bear, mountain lion and pronghorn (bear safety tips).

Recreation:

The cabin provides access to a variety of year-round recreational activities, including horseback riding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Berry picking is available in late summer.

Some of the other activities located within a few miles include off-road vehicle and motorcycle riding, snowmobiling, hiking and mountain biking (Idaho OHV safety message). Game and game bird hunting is a popular pastime in season.

Facilities:

This cabin sleeps six and provides bunkbeds with mattresses. There is a wood stove for cooking, a table and chairs, dishes, tableware and cooking pots. Firewood is available on-site. A hand pump, vault toilet, picnic table and horse corrals are located outside.

Electricity is not provided. Guests may wish to bring battery or propane-powered lighting. Bedding, matches and emergency items like a first aid kit are not provided. Trash bags are needed to pack out garbage.
