Driving In

Regardless of your starting point you will pass through some of the most beautiful country the United States has to offer.  The lodge is located in the Idaho Back Country Wilderness.  The trip offers  a photo opportunity of a life time, so bring along a camera and have it ready.


We have included a Driving Directions map from Cascade, Idaho to Big Greek Lodge, easer than following your nose. A map of the of the Big Creek area has also been included.
