This little piece of Earth nestled in a Hollow in Big South Fork was as close to paradise as I think I have ever been. From the hike in to the hike out 48 hours later, I was impressed and really overwhelmed with the scenic beauty of the area and the gracious service of the Lodge Personnel. Gregg, Kate, Catherine,...

As soon as we parked the car and started the 1.1 mile hike I could feel the worries of life disappear. Charit Creek Lodge is perfect for relaxing or hiking on the many trails. When arriving you will be greeted by friendly staff who will help you settle in to the lodge. Kate and Kennith whipped up a delicious home...

Had a fantastic stay at CCL! The food is outstanding and the people who run it are even better! Great place to unplug, relax, enjoy the scenery, and get in some great hikes! We were supposed to stay in the tree tent, but the rain flys were not working so they upgraded us to a cabin. They are really great...

Our family of 12 recently spent a night at Charit Creek Lodge and found it to not only meet, but exceed our expectations.

Kenneth and Kate were...

Charit Creek Lodge is a unique opportunity to experience the beauty of the Big South Fork. Our visit included staying in the Field Cabin, hiking to Twin Falls for sunset, and even Kneipping in the cool mountain stream near by. We recharged daily with healthy meals, including a vegetarian option, served under candlelight and on china plates. CCL is a...

We rode into Charit Creek Lodge on our trail horses, arriving about an hour after supper was finished, wet and tired from a rainy ride and a long trip to the trailhead. Greg helped us get our horses put to bed - simple and safe stalls and corrals - and ran back to the lodge to get our dinners heated...

My wife, home from college daughter, and I greatly enjoyed our two night stay at the lodge in one of the field cabins. We hiked in the .8 mile trail. It is steep, with lots of switchbacks and even one ladder/staircase, but it is fine for those in modest shape. We hiked out the horse trail which is gravel and...

An amazing off the grid place to visit and stay! Hot shower after a long day of hiking and a wonderful meal! Also a comfy bunk to rest the hiking legs at night. This is a unique place! Enjoyed our stay and will be back for sure!
