Third Fork Cabin on the Boise National Forest in Idaho


We will be traveling northwest from Boise,
Idaho along the Black Canyon Dam, through the small rural towns of Sweet and Ola, then
to the Third Fork Cabin. Just north of Ola on Forest Service road 618
we arrive at the Third Fork Cabin. The cabin lies at an elevation of 4700 feet in a beautiful
ponderosa pine setting. Available by reservation, this rustic cabin was originally built in
1908 and then rebuilt by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1933. The cabin is typically available
between mid-April and late October. Guests should bring their own supply of water,
bedding, light cookware and utensils. The cabin sleeps four people with one double bed
and two single beds. Other amenities include a propane cook range, refrigerator, table
and chairs, indoor flush toilet, shower and propane heater.
Reservations for the cabin are available through the www.recreation.gov website or by calling
1-877-444-6777. Further information is available by calling Boise National Forest at area code
208-373-4007.

  1. FYI – this is a sweet little place, but it's smack in the middle of cattle-grazing as it is allowed within the National Forest. Cows are around, there's cow dung in the yard, and barbed wire everywhere. Just so you know, since I was just there.
