Basic Info
Total Sites:
Hiking and horseback riding are highly enjoyed activities in the area. Horseback riding around the Bassam Guardstation is limited to cross-country riding. There are no established and maintained trails for horseback or hiking around this area.

Because the location is remote, many guests take advantage of the peace and serenity offered at the cabin, and spend their days bird watching and enjoying the excellent opportunities for photography.

Mountain biking is available on designated roads in the Bassam Park area and OHV riding is available on Forest roads in the Fourmile Travel Management Area. Visitors may take a day trip to the Arkansas River for fishing and whitewater rafting.
