Many wildlife species make their home here. Elk, deer, moose, bear and a variety of other animals frequent the forest. Snowshoe hares and ermine are active in winter, though they may be hard to spot with their white winter coats.

Beautiful Warm Lake is less than 5 miles from the cabin, offering boating, canoeing and fishing for rainbow, cutthroat, lake and bull trout. Billy Rice Swim Beach, on the north shore of the lake, is a great day-use site for picnicking and swimming. Numerous hiking, biking, horse and off-road vehicle trails crisscross the area around the lake. Click here for an Idaho OHV safety message.
