Cabin Vacation?

Well its Matt – I have to keep with tradition on starting with my name 😉
I was asked last night if I knew of any Thrifty Tips of finding a vacation deal. Well depending on what you call a vacation, I have it!
I came across this not to long ago and think it sounds like a lot of fun. These vary a little. Some have electricity, some don’t. But that might even make it that much more personal and special.
Most have BBQ grill stations, picnic tables, dishes, beds to sleep on, hiking areas, fishing, even horseback riding in many cases. Below are actual cabins and some views:

Even this old Forest Service Ranger Cabin for an awesome view (not for infants probably)

Now you may asking how much? Is it $250 a night – nope
Is it $199 a night? – nope
Ok – it can’t be under $100 a night, right? -wrong
How about between $10 and $40 bucks?
Think I’m kidding – NOPE – Thrifty Deal – HUH!

These are U.S. Government and Forest Service Cabins. Most are available in the summer, and quite a few in the winter. They have their peak and off peak, and vary in price based on need by the government.
You can set up water sport activities, and all most any outdoor activities you can think of. Check it out for your self at

  1. How do you find the prices? I've looked at some and it looks like you have to call every one of them for prices?

    Where did you get the $10 & $40? That sounds awesome! I'm looking in the ID areas

  2. When you go to the site, you enter your search critiera on the left. then pick the link to the location you would like to visit. Then right above where it says “BOOK NOW” click “Fees” that will show you prices and dates..

  3. Nice!! Thanks so much for researching!! Is this in Cascade? McCall?

  4. Its all over the US..
    But there are 171 places in Idaho

  5. This is AWESOME!!!! We are wanting take a few camping trips and this sounds WAY better then tent camping for not a whole lot more. Thanks for the input Matt.

  6. Matt, Thanks for info. We usually camp in tents and these bones of mine really can’t or don’t like the ground thing. I can’t wait to look around and find a nice place for my family of 4 plus a labordoodle.
