If you are the type of person that enjoys getting away from fellow human beings and disconnecting from civilization as often as possible, there's a cabin on a lake in northen Idaho that offers rugged simplicity at its finest.

Porcupine Lake is located 40-miles east of Sandpoint, Idaho. Just on the banks of the 11-acre lake, sits an old cabin that's just a three-mile hike in from the highway. It doesn't offer much in the way of creature comforts, which is probably why this location would be appealing to many.

I recently came across a fantastic video uploaded to the YouTube channel of HYOH-WU. The host's name is Joe, and he posted the 12-minute video back on October 18, 2021, as a Halloween spoof featuring a buddy named Jesse who follows him to the location wearing a Jason Voorhees hockey mask.

The inside of the cabin is exactly what's advertised. It's cramped, and you won't find a Keurig in it. There does appear to be a small cooking area. There is a rock firepit just a few feet from the entrance that you can set a chair next to and take delight in the stars above.

The location also boasts some big-time fishing, according to the Idaho Fishing Planner website. This is definitely the kind of outing where kids should be left with a babysitter or relative. There won't be any hookups to power an Xbox or tablet. It's also a great idea for a Halloween outing, and will provide a real Cabin in the Woods type of experience.
