Bear Paw Camp & Cabin

Bear Paw Camp is set deep in the heart of the mountains in a tranquil and historic location that has beckoned both people and animals for generations. Historically used as the idyllic hunting and exploration camp, Bear Paw has been re-stored to now be the core resting grounds for mountain bikers, hikers and horseback riders who are looking to get deep into the wilderness and experience epic trails and terrain. Serviced only by horses, often making a two day journey to deliver supplies, Bear Paw Camp is a true test of logistics as it offers welcomed comfort, service, and a place to call home while playing deep in the mountains.
