Tent Camp Hut, Cobb Valley

This is the last remaining Forest Service deer culling camp, the meat safe still hangs in a nearby tree. There is an actual tent at the rear with two other layers of canvas over it, which also cover the front section. Very basic, but the hut book shows it's still used occasionally. This hut was built in 1973 and has just been restored (late 2014. See more recent photos.)
