Cabins on Bureau of Reclamation land

I have a FS cabin but a friend has a cabin on Bureau of Reclamation land. Does an NFH membership benefit cabins on other public lands (not Forest Service)? If not, do you know if there is such an organization for those other cabin owners?  Some states may have lease programs, Minnesota used to, but got out of the business a decade ago.

NFH does not represent cabin owners from other federal or state public land programs, or any cabin program on private lands. We have no expertise with other public or private agencies, nor do we have the resources to become experts in any cabin program other than the Forest Service Recreation Residence program.

That said, we are currently engaged with the Bureau of Reclamation in a couple of locations where the Bureau overlaps jurisdiction with the Forest Service for USFS recreation residence cabins.

We understand there are state land cabin programs in the states of Idaho, Montana, and Pennsylvania. There may be cabin associations affiliated with these programs, however NFH has no interaction with them.
