The Antone Cabin, constructed in 1929, sits in a beautiful open meadow, at the edge of a thick forest, providing visitors with a unique camping experience on the southwestern end of the Sanowcrest Mountain range. With it's end of the road location, it's usually pretty quiet in the summer. The cabin opens for use on July 1and stays open through December, and it is popular throughout the rental season.
In addition to hunting access, the facility provides ample opportunities for hiking, backpacking and horseback riding. The cabin lies within proposed wilderness so snowmobiling and bicycling are not permitted off the main access road, FS325. Snowmobile use, on the road, is only permitted after December 1.

Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities to really enjoy their stay at Antone Cabin. 

Antone Cabin is closed on Tuesdays for administrative purposes.


A variety of hiking, backpacking and horseback riding trails extend into the Snowcrest Range, including the Snowcrest Trail, which covers the entire range, providing panoramic views. The 40-mile trail can serve as the means for a hearty horseback adventure, a lengthy backpacking trip, or make for several day trips into the wilderness. Antone Peak is a popular day hike, about 2 miles away but more challenging than one might expect.

The nearby Blacktail Deer Creek, and other seasonal mountain streams, offer access to fishing. Anglers can enjoy a possible catch of brook trout, among other species.


The cabin is a small, primitive, one-room log cabin, equipped with bunk beds that sleep two people, a table and 2 chairs. The cabin has a loft, but it is not available for public use, due to safety regulations.

Also inside the cabin is a propane stove with an oven and 2 propane wall lights supplied by the large tank outside. There is a wood stove for heat, a shelf and cupboard space, cooking pots, eating utensils, a broom and dust pan, bucket, shovel, axe and cleaning supplies. Foam pads are supplied on the beds.

Outside there is a toilet approximately 40 feet southeast of the cabin. Firewood is stacked near the outside fence , however the supply cannot be guaranteed.

Guests must bring their own water. The spring just west of the cabin may have sufficient water for cleaning, but is unreliable, often dry by late summer. Sleeping bags and blankets are not supplied, and users will also need to bring their own matches, food, toilet paper and garbage bags. Garbage and cleaning services are not provided.  

There is a large horse pasture and smaller holding corral that renters may use.
