The Third Fork Cabin lies at an elevation of 4700 feet in a beautiful ponderosa pine setting just north of Ola on Forest Service road 618. Available by reservation, this rustic cabin was originally built in 1908 and then rebuilt by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1933. The cabin is typically available between mid-April and late October.
Guests should bring their own supply of water, bedding, light cookware and utensils. The cabin sleeps four people with one double bed and two single beds. Other amenities include a propane cook range, refrigerator, table and chairs, indoor flush toilet, shower and propane heater. Reservations for the cabin are available through the www.recreation.gov website or by calling 1-877-444-6777. Further information is available by calling Boise National Forest at area code 208-373-4007.
FYI - this is a sweet little place, but it's smack in the middle of cattle-grazing as it is allowed within the National Forest. Cows are around, there's cow dung in the yard, and barbed wire everywhere. Just so you know, since I was just there.
