Wall Creek Cabin is a small dwelling that gives guests access to prime elk and deer viewing, as access is through a state Wildlife Management Area. It is typically open to the public from mid-May through November, offering ample opportunity to explore southwestern Montana.
The facility was a ranger station until the 1940s. There are three log buildings at the site, including the small rental cabin, a barn and a main "Ranger" cabin. The barn and main cabin are used by grazing permit holders. Only the smaller cabin is available for public use. Though usually quiet, there may be work activity associated with grazing management, with cowboys, horses and dogs living at the site and their days often start early.
The site can easily be accessed by vehicle and is open during late spring through early fall. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and
must bring several of their own amenities.
The primitive cabin is small, with a single room and an enclosed porch. It is equipped with two sets of bunk beds with foam pads and can sleep up to four people.
Other amenities include a 2 burner propane cook stove, propane lantern, table and chairs, cleaning supplies, basic cooking utensils, cooking pots and a wood stove for heat.
Firewood may be stacked against the fence to the west of the cabin, but the firewood supply cannot be guaranteed. Split wood is stored in the box in the porch. A
primitive outhouse with vault toilet is located 100 feet north of the cabin.
The only water that may be available is at a spigot at the horse trough. Primarily for stock use, the water must be properly filtered, treated or boiled for drinking or cooking purposes. Propane is not
provided for the cook stove or lantern, so guests will need to bring small disposable propane canisters. Cell phone service is minimal or nonexistent in the area.
Other items to bring include sleeping bags and pillows, matches, flashlight, food, toilet paper, cleaning supplies and garbage bags. Guests are expected to pack out all trash and food
and clean the cabin before leaving. The firewood supply in the wood box should also be replenished.
