What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson
 
Big Creek Lodge 1936

The History

Built in 1934, the log cabin-like Big Creek Hotel attracted generations to this outdoor wonderland. Until, in 2008, a fire burned this piece of Idaho history to the ground. Many thought this unforgettable destination was lost to the past. Until we gave it a new future.

The IAF

Basically, the Idaho Aviation Foundation exists so aviation destinations that often fly under the radar keep existing, too. This dedication is exemplified in Big Creek-a remote, rare gem in Idaho's rich aviation heritage.

The Area

Big Creek lies on the lip of a vast 2.4 million acres of untamed land known as the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness. By and large, it's pretty epic out here.
