    South Fork, Colorado

    Overview

    Elwood Cabin sits in a saddle along the San Juan Mountains overlooking an open meadow, offering guests a unique lodging opportunity. The cabin was built in 1911 by the Mountain States Telephone Company as a "line shack" to support crews maintaining the transcontinental telephone line. Remnants of this old telephone line are still found along Iron Creek to the southeast. The cabin was also used as a Forest Service Station from 1950 until 1962, serving as living quarters for Forest Service employees who worked on numerous projects in the area.Although the phone line has been abandoned, today the cabin is a high-altitude getaway for guests seeking relaxation and recreation in south-central Colorado. During summer months the cabin can be accessed by motorized travel. During winter months access to the cabin is by snowmobiles, cross country skiing or snow shoeing.

    Recreation

    The area around Elwood cabin offers a variety of recreational opportunities year-round. Summertime brings excellent scenic tour opportunities in and around the Summitville area as well as exploration of several historical mining sites. Anglers have a spectacular backdrop to fishing streams such as Iron Creek or Treasure Creek. Nearby Platoro Reservoir, which feeds the Conejos River, provides excellent fishing for trout and salmon. Great hiking can be found around the area, as it spans both the Rio Grande and San Juan National Forests, as well as the South San Juan Wilderness. In winter, the Elwood cabin area can be blanketed with as much as ten feet of snow, requiring preparation and knowledge of winter travel. Snowmobiling, skiing and snowshoeing are popular activities in the area.

    Natural Features

    High in the San Juan Mountains at an elevation of 11,000 feet, this cabin provides guests with views of nearby peaks, meadows filled with wildflowers and alpine forests. While staying at such a high elevation guests will notice how light plays differently on the landscape and stars blanket the sky on clear cold evenings. Elk, deer, and other wildlife are often seen in meadows adjacent to the cabin. Bear, marmot and chipmunks also call the area home.

    Nearby Attractions

    Summitville is a nearby ghost town where gold was first discovered in 1870, then mined until the early 1990s. When contaminants leaked off-site and flowed into the local watershed the government forced it to shut down. Now a water treatment plant is on the site as part of a federal clean up program.

      At the moment, there is nothing on this 21 acre property except a fire pit, a place to park, a lot of space, and often antelope. It is less than 1/2 mile to public land to the East, 3/4 mile to public land to the West, and about 2 miles to public land to the south. That public land (BLM, Forest Service, and State Wildlife Land) extends throughout the San Juan Mountain Range and is hundreds of square miles. The property is close to La Jara State Wildlife Area, which is great for many outdoor activities, including snowkiting! Other nearby public land attractions include the Alamosa River, Platoro Caldera, Bennett Peak, Cumbres Pass, the Rio Grande, the Great Sand Dunes National Park and much more. Close to many great rock climbing, fishing, hunting, hiking, biking, canoeing, rafting, etc. spots.

      At this time there is no bathroom or composting outhouse, so vehicle camping with your own bathroom is what is available at this time.

      There is one house that is less than 1/2 from the property. The next closest neighbor (in sight) is more than mile away. Those, and one more unoccupied house a distance away, are the only houses in sight of the property.

      The property is flat, close to level, with grasses, short sage brushes, and some cacti. The views are of Chiquito Peak and Meseta Capulín to the West and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the East.

      A limited amount of firewood is provided per visit booked a week or more in advance. More firewood is available for a fee. Firewood is only available while there is no fire ban in effect. Be very mindful of the wind when considering making a fire. Make sure your campfire is completely snuffed out with water when unattended.

      Be aware that the CO-15 north of Z Road is a dirt road with washboards, Z Road is also a dirt road with washboards, and 3.8 Road is not maintained and is a little rutted and grassy. The distance needed to travel on 3.8 Road to reach the property is less than a 1/4 mile. I have been on the road in low-clearance vehicles that were fine, but I am from this area and think roads like that are "normal". I noticed some camps had bad reviews for being located on bumpy roads, so I want to be extra clear- 3.8 Road is not maintained by the county.

      Please also check local weather conditions.

      If there are any requests, I can try to fulfill them before your visit. Let me know.
