Beaver Creek Cabin (Id)

Boise National Forest



Beaver Creek Cabin is a historic site, originally established in 1912 and built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, situated in the Boise Mountain Range. It offers a variety of recreational activities such as hiking, fishing, and hunting, as well as multiple amenities like an indoor bathroom and a wood stove. Guests should be prepared to bring their own supplies and light sources as electricity is not available.


The Beaver Creek Cabin site was established for administrative use in 1912. The current dwelling was built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps using standard blueprints for that time.

Beaver Creek Cabin is open year-round. It's accessible by car in the summer months and by snowshoes or cross-country skis in winter. Guests arriving in winter should park at the Whoop-Um-Up Park N' Ski Area (permit required) and access the 1.5 mile Pilgrim Trail to reach the cabin. The trail is moderately difficult in normal conditions, and guests are responsible for their own safety.

The cabin offers many creature comforts for an enjoyable stay. However, several of the amenities are only available seasonally. Guests should be prepared to bring certain supplies or gear according to the season.


Numerous hiking, biking, horse, off-road vehicle and motorcycle trails are in the vicinity. Click here for an Idaho OHV Safety Message. During the winter months, miles of cross-country ski and snowshoe trails are right out the front door.
