This one-story, rectangular cabin has a steeply pitched gable roof with a central brick chimney. The symmetrical facade has a central door flanked by pairs of windows with plain surrounds. The interior consists of one large room with concrete floors, plaster walls, and tongue-and-groove wood walls. Wood floors once covered the concrete, and stoves were once connected to the chimney, but these have been removed. Nevertheless, all the cabins at the camp appear much as they did when they were constructed. The building is typical of the simple facilities provided at camps built by the federal government in the 1930s. The cabins at Camp Lee Canyon continue to serve the public today.
