One of the BLM’s first public use cabins in the White Mountains, Colorado Creek Cabin remains one of the most popular and accessible cabins, only 14 miles from the Elliott Highway. The 12’ x 16’ cabin sits next to a small lake and has distant views of the craggy peaks in the heart of the White Mountains. It comfortably sleeps up to 4 persons. Cabins are equipped with bunk beds, a table and benches, cook stove, lantern, fire extinguisher, saw, ax, broom, wood stove and outhouse. Renters need to bring fuel for the lanterns and cook stoves. BLM recently converted from white gas to propane cook stoves and lanterns, so make sure to bring the proper fuel! Carry extra lantern mantles or candles in case the lanterns don't function properly. Cabin users should be prepared to cut firewood or bring some with them. Other recommended items to bring include maps and compass, matches, sleeping bag and pad, extra food items and water, and warm clothing.
