Description:

Magee airstrip is located at the confluence of Potter Creek and Teepee Creek in Northern Idaho's  Panhandle National Forest.  There are two camping sites at Magee Airstrip Campground.  The sites have a pit toilet, tables, fire pits, and stoves.  There is also potable water on site.  Another camping site is on the South end near the creek.  The Magee Ranger's Cabin is a fully furnished 2-story cabin in the center of the Coeur d'Alene River Ranger District. Guests can imagine themselves as forest rangers when sleeping in the old ranger's quarters, and enjoying the superb views and convenient access to prime recreation trails.  The Magee Cabin was constructed in 1922 as living quarters for the Magee District Ranger.  The cabin along with several buildings at the site are on the National Register of Historic Places.  These buildings may occasionally be occupied as temporary housing for Forest Service employees working in the vicinity.
