Our epic back country offers everything from relaxing activities like, fly fishing and ice fishing, floating the river, soaking in hot springs, and hiking. For the more extreme sportsman, skiing, dirt biking, rafting, off-roading, hang gliding, mountain biking, and rock climbing, to name a few. Allen House sits right at the crossroads of it all.
