Know Before You Go


The seclusion of this cabin necessitates being prepared to handle any emergency situation.

Inclement weather may cause an unexpected extension of your trip.

Even when the Refuge is open to snowmachines, Miller Creek ice thickness and overflow conditions make access hazardous and unpredictable.

Be familiar with ADF&G and Refuge specific hunting and fishing regulations.

Bringing a personal cooking stove is recommended.

Carry in potable water or boil surface water 5 minutes before drinking.

Pack out your trash.



The Vogel Lake Cabin is a large, one story rustic log cabin built in the early 1940's as a hunting and fishing cabin.

Located on the south end of Vogel Lake, this cabin offers seclusion and good fishing.

The boat provided at the cabin gives anglers excellent opportunities to catch rainbow trout. Wildlife includes moose, black and brown bears and wolves.

Hunting is allowed for these species in designated seasons.

In the winter there is cross-county skiing and snowmachining.

Contact the Refuge Headquarters for snowmachine regulations in this area.

The cabin is surrounded by mature spruce and birch trees and the elevation is approximately 110 feet.

The cabin contains two bunk beds, a table with benches, wood stove, splitting maul, crosscut saw, broom, shovel, water bucket, fire extinguisher, boat with oars, established campfire ring and outhouse.

Access to the cabin is by float plane, ski plane and snowmachine.

The cabin is located on the south end of Vogel Lake. Refer to USGS map Kenai D-2.. GPS coordinates: Latitude 60 degrees 59.316 , Longitude 150 degrees 26.076 (Degrees Decimal Minutes).
