ANAN BAY CABIN, AK
part ofTongass National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Open through Thu Dec 31 2015 Season Dates
OverviewAnan Bay Cabin was originally built in 1964 but a new cabin was constructed in the spring of 2012 using Alaska Yellow Cedar from the Tongass National Forest. The cabin is typically open from May through December, offering relaxation and recreation in Alaska's beautiful Inside Passage. The cabin is popular with bear watchers and is ideally located near a wildlife observatory, where bears and bald eagles come to fish for salmon in the adjacent creek.
The site can be accessed by float plane or boat, depending on conditions. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin sits on a gentle slope leading down to the beach, overlooking Anan Bay. The surrounding rainforest is primarily Sitka spruce and western hemlock with some scattered cedar. The slopes around the cabin are gentle to moderate. The nearby lagoon is an intertidal area that often goes dry during low tide.
The 1-mile Anan Creek Trail leads from the cabin to the Anan Wildlife Observatory. During peak viewing season, the months of July and August, Forest Service interpreters are on-site to provide current information on bear safety, trail conditions and bear activity. There is a high possibility of encountering bears on this trail during this time.
This 15x17-ft two-story cabin sleeps seven people with two single bunks (one with trundle) and a second floor loft. The cabin also has a table with benches, oil stove (#1 oil only), broom, mooring float and outhouse toilet.
