OverviewAvery Creek Cabin is located 20 miles northeast of Kingston, Idaho, along Forest Road 208. The fully furnished three-room cabin is adjacent to the North Fork Coeur d'Alene River on the Coeur d'Alene River Ranger District in the Idaho Panhandle National Forests.
The cabin was built between 1926 and 1928 to house Forest Service employees needed for administrative supervision and fire protection. It was built from a standard Forest Service plan known as the firemen's cabin. In 1935, a picnic area was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps across the road from the cabin and adjacent to the North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River. In 1940, a bathroom was added in a board and batten shed addition to the cabin's east side, and a rustic log garage was built behind the cabin. The cabin was used for crew housing until 1981.
Newly renovated, the cabin is now fully accessible. Avery Cabin's central location along the North Fork Coeur d'Alene River provides easy access to the site. Access to the cabin is along paved roadways, making it an easy destination to reach by car. The cabin is available from mid-May through September, and provides many of the comforts of home. Guests only need to bring a few of their own amenities for an enjoyable stay.
Located in the heart of the Coeur d'Alene Mountains along the North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River, Avery Creek Cabin is situated in a small grassy area surrounded by an evergreen forest at an elevation of 3,000 feet.
Guests can enjoy fishing for cutthroat or rainbow trout in the river. Check Idaho Fish and Game regulations for restrictions. Tubing is also a popular river activity.
