The Lower Toklat Ranger Cabin No. 18 is a log shelter in the National Park Service Rustic style in Denali National Park. The cabin is part of a network of shelters used by patrolling park rangers throughout the park. It is a standard design by the National Park Service Branch of Plans and Designs and was built in 1931.

Work began in the summer of 1931, with construction carried out by contracted carpenters, described as "two old Swedes". A ranger-built food cache and dog houses followed in 1933 and 1936.The design originated at Yellowstone National Park, adapted in this case with a somewhat larger size.
