Ritchie Smith Cabin

DOC Cabin (may be reserved by anyone)

Capacity: 8

Ritchie Smith Cabin was completed in 1975 across the river from the site of the first Agassiz Cabin. Originally named Agassiz II, it was renamed in 1990 for Ritchie Smith '26, a life-long friend of the Dartmouth Outing Club.

Ritchie Smith is a one-room cabin located in the Agassiz Basin, a few hundred yards into the woods on the east side of Moosilauke Brook. It sleeps eight (two bunks and a loft with four mattresses) and has gas lights and two stoves, a gas stove for cooking and a woodstove for heating. The cabin is well-insulated and makes an excellent cabin for winter use.

Ritchie Smith is located within 45 minutes of most of the White Mountains and is within 10 miles of the entrance road to the Ravine Lodge and Mt. Moosilauke. Moosilauke Brook provides excellent opportunities for fishing, swimming, and sunning. The nearby mountains are great for hiking in the summer, and for skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.

Ritchie Smith is located 58 miles from Hanover, west of North Woodstock, New Hampshire, and is 1/8 mile from parking.
