The McCain Guard Station is a rustic cabin that is popular year-round, with hikers and horseback riders primarily using it during the summer months and snowmobile enthusiasts using it throughout the winter. Several trails are nearby, and the open meadows offer gentle sledding for younger riders.
This guard station is located 23 miles from Alpine up the Little Greys River Road. The station's visitor capacity is limited to 8 people, with room for more people to camp outside of the cabin. There is no water or electricity available at the guard station. There is a propane heater, a propane cook top, and propane lights. Toilet facilities are located outdoors separate from the guard station.
