As of 6/16/2009 the Big Shaheen and Little Shaheen cabins have oil stoves and no wood stoves. Users should bring #1 heating oil (Kerosene) to fuel the stove. The stoves will burn half a gallon in 8 hours at the lowest setting, and up to 1.2 gallons during 8 hours at the highest setting at Little Shaheen, and 2 gallons during 8 hours at Big Shaheen. A flash light is handy for looking into the burn chamber when lighting the stove. Matches or a lighter are needed to light a small piece of paper to drop in to the burn chamber when lighting the stove. Detailed directions with color photos on how to light the stove are provided in the cabin.
- The cabin is closed from 06-24-2018 through 07-07-2018.
