Heritage Icon - A white arrowhead and wagon wheel inside a brown squareWhen you think of spending the night in a national forest, most people would think of sleeping in a tent in a campground, right? Ever wonder what it's like to sleep in a renovated cabin on a Colorado ranch dating from 1908? Your family could also stay in a cabin in Wyoming's Snowy Range that was used by snow surveyors as a refuge during severe snowstorms? If it's solitude that you are looking for, how about staying overnight in a fire lookout tower that rises 55 feet above the forest below just like the rangers did back in the 1960's? Experiences like these are available for you or your family by renting a US Forest Service historic cabin or fire lookout.
