Spanish Creek Cabin - Bozeman

Spanish Creek Cabin sits at the base of the Lee Metcalf Wilderness south of Bozeman, Montana. It makes an excellent base camp for those wanting to day hike into the Spanish Peaks. Several Forest Service Trails are adjacent to the cabin.

Spanish Creek Cabin was built in 1934 and is open all year. Electricity and running water are NOT available. Capacity is 4 people with a bunk bed downstairs and 2 beds in the loft. The Forest Service provides firewood for the woodstove. Basic cooking supplies are provided.
