The original Highview Cabin in Algonquin was built in 1922 as headquarters for fire rangers on patrol. It was destroyed by fire in 1928 and rebuilt in that year. This one room, open concept log cabin is located just off the Nipissing River west of the 840m portage to Gibson Lake. It could take one or two days to access this cabin by canoe, depending on your access point.

Sleeping bags, air mattresses, cooking stove, pots and pans, utensils, flashlight, lantern, matches, food, drinking water. Appropriate cold weather gear for winter.
Domestic animals (pets) are not permitted in the facility or on site and smoking is prohibited in all facilities.
