Description

Set in a rolling pasture surrounded with aspen and pine trees, and positively littered with wildflowers, the Summit Springs Guard Station is a beautifully set bunkhouse that guests can rent to enjoy a rustic experience similar to that of Ashley Natinal Forest’s first rangers.

Built in 1931 as part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal, the complex served as home to those who patrolled the forest on horseback prior to the modern age of vehicles. The maximum capacity for the complex is 40 people, and propane is provided for the fridge, stove, and water heater, but bring your own linens, dishes, silverware, cups, and glasses.

Listed on th National Register of Historic Places, the Summit Springs Guard Station isn’t the only attraction for those who love nerd out with a bit of time travel—Sheep Creek Loop Scenic Backway (Geological Loop) is a 10 mile drive through spectacular canyon scenery, and thanks to the Uinta Crest Fault and other rock features, millions of years of geologic history can be experienced on this 20-minute drive.
