About the property

Experience the thrill of a classic Rocky Mountain hunting adventure! Traditional Canvas Wall Tent accommodation for four hunters, situated on a private ranch surrounded by Challis National Forest. Wake up with the wildlife while others are preparing to drive in for the day. Located N of Challis on Morgan Creek road in unit 36B, convenient to units 28 and 37 too. Over the counter deer and elk tags and great road access to thousands of acres of prime habitat make Central Idaho a premier destination for the adventurous self-guided hunter.

Fully furnished 16x20 Wall tent; 4 cots, wood stove, stocked kitchen, propane stove/oven and lights, picnic table indoors, right down to coolers and the coffee pot. PLUS the niceties not usually found in the wilderness; clean Porta-jon, BBQ, HOT camp shower (propane), fire pit, camp chairs.... just bring your sleeping bags, clothes, food and beverages. Our rental is designed to maximize the time you get to spend in the field, skip all the camping gear and the two day drives, we've got camp covered,

Don't forget your license and the guns! If you've tried flying for a hunting trip before you know those necessary tools can be a problem. We will help arrange the shipping of your rifle or bow and the bulk of your gear so you'll just need to make your flight on time with a carry-on.

Challis isn't served by commercial airlines so you'll be probably be flying to Boise, ID or Missoula, MT. Pocatello, Idaho Falls and Twin Falls are a little closer and also have regional airfields and Salt Lake City is an affordable option only 6 hours South. We recommend a four wheel drive rental car to tackle our gravel and snow covered roads.

Not looking for a hunting adventure? Our rental is also available by special arrangement throughout the year for fishing, hiking, wildlife viewing, star gazing, or whatever outdoor adventure you seek!

Our rental is unique so feel free to contact us with questions. 879 six one two one. Idaho area code is 208.

The drive to the property was very impressive! The rock canyon is awesome. Not being from the area, I initially had concerns about road conditions, but it's off a compact dirt/gravel road which any vehicle could handle.

Everything at the site was as described. The only thing that surprised us was it was much colder in the morning than we expected for August! I did not expect that we would be using the wood stove at all but was very glad to make use of it. The mosquitos were ravenous, but that is to be expected this time of year, especially being right next to a creek. Showering in bug spray did the trick haha! My son had a great time fishing in the creek and caught and released several.

Trent was very responsive with questions I had before the trip. We very much appreciate the hospitality. Thank you!
