The Upper Kintla Lake Patrol Cabin in Glacier National Park is a rustic backcountry log cabin. Built in 1931 to standard National Park Service plan G913, the cabin has a single room.[2] The cabin was modeled after similar cabins used at Yellowstone National Park, which were in turn similar to those used by the U.S. Forest Service, which resembled trappers' cabins.[3] The Upper Kintla Lake Patrol Cabin is actually situated on the eastern shore of Kintla Lake which is almost 2 miles (3.2 km) west of Upper Kintla Lake.
