Lost Coin Lake Ranger Cabin Ranger Cabin Accesspoint

Ranger Cabin


There is very little on file on this cabin. We do know that it was built in 1936 by the Ontario Forestry Branch. In 1973, it was evaluated as "worthless" because it was so isolated from roads and canoe routes. Today, this could be a selling point.

Features and Amenities

  • This log, one room, open concept cabin is located on a shallow, weedy shoreline on Lost Coin Lake (no swimming opportunities).
  • All cabins have fire extinguishers, wash basin, metal pail, shovel, broom, dust pan, bunks (no mattresses), CSA-approved wood-burning stove and chimney, stove operating instructions, heat shields behind and under the stove, table and chairs, and an outside closed-in toilet.
  • Cabins are not equipped with any dishes, or pots and pans.
  • Smoking is prohibited in rustic Ranger Cabins.
  • Pets are prohibited.
  • No running water, indoor bathrooms, or electricity is available
