BEECHER PASS CABIN, AK
part ofTongass National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Open year round. Season Dates
OverviewBeecher Pass Cabin offers a remote and rustic place to stay while enjoying the coastal waters and forests of southeastern Alaska. It is available for reservations year-round, giving outdoor enthusiasts access to great hunting and fishing.
The Beecher Pass Cabin is accessible by boat or float plane. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin is located on the south side of Beecher Pass on the northwest shore of Woewodski Island. It sits on a gravel beach overlooking scenic Duncan Canal to the north. The surrounding terrain is forested, with occasional steep slopes.
Waterfowl hunting is fairly good in Duncan Canal, as is salmon and halibut fishing. Hunting is available as per state or federal hunting regulations; click here for more information from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. A boat is necessary to access fishing areas (check local tide tables). Fishing equipment and a boat are not provided.
The hunter-style cabin is equipped with four single wooden bunks, a table, benches, a wood stove for heat and an outhouse with a pit toilet. A covered deck overlooks the water. A broom, dust pan, axe and splitting maul are typically available, but may be missing or damaged. Firewood is generally available, but is not guaranteed. Firewood is for heating the cabin only, not for outdoor campfires.

The boat route from Petersburg is over protected water, but includes one passage where attention to channel markers is essential. The route from Wrangell crosses Sumner Strait, which can be very rough in windy weather. Boats can be anchored anywhere in front of the cabin.
