FREDONIA, Arizona – The North Kaibab Ranger District has added seven Big Springs cabins to the Kaibab National Forest’s cabin rental offerings, which will be available for public use on May 1 as part of the Arizona Cabin Rental “Rooms with a View” program.

Tucked away among the forest’s ponderosa pines along Forest Service Road 22, each of the cabins offers a divine view of the Kaibab Plateau’s most abundant water source as it runs down an exposed limestone cliff face on the east and pools into two ponds at the cabins’ edge on the west.

The Forest Service recently completed renovations to these structures, and modern accommodations for groups of two to four per cabin include accessible drinking water, accessible flush toilets and showers, beds with mattresses, accessible laundry facilities, and more.

Reservations can be made no earlier than six months in advance online. Cabin renters need to bring their own food, sleeping bags, pillows, towels and personal accessories. The rental rate is $65 per night per cabin from May 1 to Nov. 30.

The Big Springs cabin site is located approximately 30 miles from Fredonia, Arizona, about an hour drive from the north rim of the Grand Canyon, and about a 35 minute drive from the Rainbow Rim Trail, a winding 18-mile long hiking and mountain biking trail on the forest that offers stunning views from five scenic overlooks along the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

      It’s odd, Bender – try this, also reset in story:
      Then you put in “Kaibab” to get to the reservation site.
      We tried taking you directly to the Kaibab reservation Web page but it seems to treat that as an individual search. We try to save you steps, sometimes it just doesn’t work. ERG ARGH. Sorry. 🙂 Thank you –
