Control Lake Cabin

Book Cabin | Additional Cabin Information

This is a standard cabin on a smaller lake, about 2,500 ft long with hills surrounding. This cabin was originally the Ranger District Office and has multiple rooms. This cabin no longer has a propane heat source; and the surrounding area was clear-cut in 2016 which impacted the aesthetics of the area and impeded shoreline access. Dock is also in poor condition, use caution.


The cabin is large multi-room structure that once served as the Ranger District office. It is furnished with wooden bunkbeds (without mattresses) and some rustic log furniture. It can accommodate up to six guests. The cabin is equipped with a table, benches, a wood stove for heat and an outside toilet. Other amenities include cooking counters, an axe, splitting maul and a broom. Firewood may be available, but the supply cannot be guaranteed. The cabin does not have running water or electricity. Guests must bring their own food, water, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, cook stove, stove fuel, matches, cooking gear/utensils, light source (lantern), toilet paper, first aid kit and garbage bags. Water is available from the lake, but must be filtered, boiled or chemically treated before drinking.
