This site is to provide updates and information on the Idaho Aviation Foundation's (IAF) efforts to rebuild Bigiaflogo Creek Lodge in central Idaho. The lodge was originally built in the 1930's and has a tremendous backcountry pilot and outdoor enthusiast following. Sadly, the lodge burned to the ground in October 2008. However, a happy future is in store for the old site; we broke ground for the new lodge in 2015 and will complete the work in 2017! Whether you will become a volunteer, donor or even a reader and contributor of Big Creek lore, we'd love you to be a part of the success story.
