Basic Overview

Stub Creek Cabin Campground is located in the Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forests Pawnee National Grassland in Colorado. This area known for its scenic beauty, provides an excellent retreat for those looking to escape into the wilderness.

Cabin Features

The Stub Creek Cabin is a rustic cabin that was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. It comes with basic amenities such as:

  • Wooden bunks
  • A woodstove for heating
  • A propane cook stove
  • A table and chairs
  • Basic kitchen utensils

Bear in mind that there is no electricity or running water in the cabin. Visitors should bring their own water or be prepared to treat water from nearby sources.

Outdoor Recreation

Guests can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as:

  • Hiking
  • Mountain biking
  • Horseback riding
  • Wildlife viewing
  • Fishing in nearby creeks and lakes

Winter brings opportunities for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling.

Access and Location

The cabin is generally accessible by car during the summer months, but winter access may require snowshoes, skis, or snowmobiles due to snow-covered roads. Directions to the site should be carefully reviewed; a map or GPS can be crucial for finding your way due to remote location and possible lack of cell service.

Availability and Booking

The cabin can be reserved in advance, often up to six months ahead of time. It's important to book early, particularly for peak seasons, as the cabin can be in high demand.

Fees and Permits

There is a fee to rent the cabin which is used for the maintenance of the site. Visitors are expected to follow all posted rules and regulations during their stay to minimize impact on the natural environment and to respect other visitors.

Preparation and Safety

Visitors should come prepared for all types of weather and should be aware of local wildlife and potential hazards. It's important to follow a "Leave No Trace" ethic by packing out all your trash and minimizing your impact on the surrounding wilderness.

Special Considerations

  • Pets: Specific rules apply regarding pets, so check the regulations before you bring any animals.
  • Group Size: Group size may be limited to protect the area and ensure the quality of the wilderness experience for everyone.
  • Fire Restrictions: Fire regulations change with conditions (like drought or wildfire risk), so it's important to check current restrictions before lighting campfires.

  • USDA Forest Service for Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forests Pawnee NG.
