Kitty Lake Ranger Cabin Ranger Cabin Accesspoint

Ranger Cabin


Built in 1935, this is one of Algonquin Park's larger rustic ranger cabins. Materials were salvaged from both the abandoned Booth Depot Farm in close proximity and the adjacent Booth "End of Steel" lumber camp. Road access enabled rangers to easily bring in dressed lumber for the roof and floor. Few areas of Algonquin Park saw so much pioneering activity as this area. A logging depot farm, lumber camp, logging railway, fire tower, hose drying tower, towerman's cabin, a fire equipment storage house on the river and improvements for the spring river log drive are all evident within one mile of this cabin. In fall 2015, volunteers with The Friends of Algonquin Park replaced the chinking between the exterior logs, reglazed windows, and painted the exterior trim.
