Located at Mile 32.2 Chena Hot Springs Road, this large, log cabin is nestled in amongst large spruce and birch trees. The Chena River Cabin is designed to accommodate visitors who need extra accessibility. Bring your own supply of firewood. Visitors should anticipate some snow removal to make the facility fully accessible in the winter. The front porch has ramp access and there is a ramp to the accessibly-designed outhouse. The cabin looks out on the Chena River, with a large 8' porch and a short trail leading to a large gravel river bar.

The cabin is supplied with a wood stove, table, seats, broom, ax, saw, and shovel. This cabin was constructed by volunteers and State Park staff for your use and enjoyment. Please help keep it neat and attractive for those who will use it after your visit.

The Chena River Cabin is located off mile 32.2 Chena Hot Springs Road. Watch for the Colorado/Stiles Creek trailhead on the left (North) side of the road. The turnoff to the cabin is 0.7 miles past the trailhead, on the RIGHT. It is less than 300 feet to the cabin from the locked gate.
