The Wild Basin House was built in the southeastern corner of Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, USA in 1931. The log residence was built to plans provided by the National Park Service Branch of Plans and Designs at a cost of $2500, in the National Park Service rustic style. The one-story house measures 23 feet (7.0 m) by 31 feet (9.4 m), resting on a fieldstone foundation, with a shallow-pitched wood shingle roof. The interior comprises three rooms.[2]

The Wild Basin House was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on January 29, 1988.[1] The Wild Basin Ranger Station, also listed on the NRHP, is nearby.
