The cabins at Jawbone Flats lie 3 miles deep in the Opal Creek Wilderness. Our guests walk in along the North Fork of the Santiam River, beneath the ancient firs and past rusting reminders of the canyon’s mining history. Off-the-grid and disconnected, spend your time with us hiking, swimming, relaxing, and letting the wilderness change you.

Amenities

All of our cabins are equipped with potable running water, water heater, and electricity, and are heated by wood stove (firewood provided) or baseboard heaters.  All beds are provided with a bottom sheet, pillow and pillow case, but guests will need to bring their own sleeping bags or warm bedding. Guests are also responsible for bringing their own bath towels. Our main kitchen offers healthy, hearty vegetarian meals for a reasonable price; each cabin kitchen is also equipped with a refrigerator, stove top and oven as well as basic cookware, dishes, utensils and flatware. Please note that dogs are not allowed inside our buildings or for overnight stays.

Each cabin party has the option of registering for one of our twice-daily gear shuttles to carry your luggage into Jawbone Flats. However, we encourage you to consider hiking in your gear and helping us achieve our goals of reduced road traffic and less reliance on fossil fuels. Any cabin party who forgoes the use of a gear shuttle will be thanked with a trip discount of $40 in the summer season or $20 in the shoulder season.

Activities

Guided Hikes

Open to all ages; hiking pace will be steady but relaxed.

  • $25 per person; minimum 4 people
  • Pre-registration is required through our registrar two weeks before your trip date

Off-Grid Systems Tour

This 30-minute tour will introduce you to the inner workings of Jawbone Flats and our off-grid power systems.
