Overview

Eleazar’s Cabin is named in honor of a BLM carpenter who directed the construction of 13 cabins in the White Mountains National Recreation Area. His first trip into the White Mountains was as a young Boy Scout in 1966. Eleazar’s Cabin sits on a bluff with expansive views of the White Mountains, Beaver Creek Wild and Scenic River, and the Wickersham Creek and Moose Creek drainages. The 12’ x 16’ cabin can sleep up to 6 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 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.
