Deer Park Cabin

This cabin sleeps 6 in 3 bunk beds. It offers a living room, a kitchen with a propane stove, a wood stove for heat, an outhouse and a water pump. Deer Park cabin does not have indoor plumbing or electricity. The kitchen has a propane stove, refrigerator, sink (remember no indoor water), and a table and chairs. An outhouse is located near the cabin and a water pump (with potable water) is in a building to the right of the cabin. There is a futon and two sets of bunk beds in the living room. A wood stove is provided for heating and firewood can be gathered in the surrounding forest. An established campfire ring is located in the parking area out front. The North Fork of the Boise River Trail starts right behind Deer Park cabin and leads you upstream. About one mile upriver the trail passes through some of the roughest, most scenic canyon walls in Idaho. The trail then dips down to the river's edge to pass a rock bluff. The North Fork provides good fishing after the spring runoff (about July 1.)
