Dry Wolf Cabin is located about 20 miles southwest of Stanford, Montana, in the Little Belt Mountains. The rustic cabin is conveniently located along Dry Wolf Creek, providing a pleasant setting for anglers, wildlife watchers and hikers.

When snow arrives, access on the graveled county road is by four-wheel-drive only.

Natural Features:

The cabin is nestled along Dry Wolf Creek at an elevation of 5,600 feet. Dry Wolf Creek is a tributary of the Judith River and flows north for about 40 miles in the Little Belt Mountains. Surrounding peaks include Gibson Peak and Butcherknife Mountain.


Anglers seek brook and rainbow trout in Dry Wolf Creek. A variety of horseback riding and hiking trails originate at the Dry Wolf Creek Campground, about 3 miles south of the cabin. Trails for mountain bikers and off-road vehicle riders are also in the area.

Cross country skiing is popular in winter months.


The cabin is a one-room structure that sleeps five. Amenities include a propane cook stove, propane lights and a wood stove for heat. Firewood is provided and is located in the storage shed near the cabin. Dishes and pots and pans are available, and a vault toilet is located outside.

No water or electricity is included. Guests are expected to bring bedding, food, water, garbage bags, a cooler, flashlights, toilet paper and personal necessities. (Click here for more cabin details.)

Pets are not allowed in the cabin, but can be kept outside in a kennel or on a six-foot or less leash.

Nearby Attractions:

Groceries and fuel may be found in Stanford, about 20 miles from the cabin.
