Location verified 50.53648,-122.92970. We found the new Tenquille Lake cabin, constructed in 2011. There was a very fancy ladder/stairway leading up to loft and about 10 good foamies upstairs. Downstairs there was a two burner propane stove. Two very nice large tables. The cabin was fairly clean. There were mice rattling the chimney at night, and one or two hopped over people, so hang up your food! Outhouse: The outhouse was functional. Down the hole is a conveyer belt such that when you flush it, the conveyer moves the turds horizontally, thus separating them from the water which runs off. It's the latest thing. There was a solar panel on the western end, and inside a couple of LED lights which operate on a timer. The windows are mostly covered in winter, to strengthen against snow, with only a smaller rectangle in center. But still bright. Lots of snowmobile tracks. I imagine it is often used by snowmobiles in winter. A book inside gives the history of the cabin. See

2012.01.23 Tim Gage - Hiked up to new cabin with snowshoes
We hiked up to the cabin with snowshoes from the bridge over the Lillooet River. The new hut is great, with a nice wood burning stove. However no firewood is provided. Furthermore the stove pipe is way to short because it was completely covered by snow and therefore blocked. There was only about three or four feet of snow on the roof so this is a major design oversight. We could not figure out how to get on the roof to clear it, so it was a cold night. See Trip Report
2011.08.06 Benoit Landry - New cabin being built
On the week-end of August 6-7 we enjoyed the sound of a helicopter coming in 23 times to drop materials, as well as a lot of hammering. A crew of some 20 people worked all day from 8am until 7:30pm then all day sunday to erect the structure of the new cabin, built on the site of the (dismantled) old cabin. A large work party will be there on the week-end of August 13-14 so if you want peace and quiet.. stay away!
