Status: Open year round. Season Dates
OverviewCrescent Lake Cabin is an extremely remote and secluded place to stay in the Kenai Mountains of south-central Alaska. While it is recommended for more hardy travelers, it provides access to great fishing, hunting, trail and wildlife viewing opportunities.
The cabin can be accessed by floatplane, or by hiking, biking, horseback riding, skiing or snowmobiling on a trail that requires up to 7 miles of trekking. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin is located south of Sterling Highway on the Crescent Lake Trail. It sits at the northwest end of Crescent Lake, at an elevation of about 1,450 feet. The surrounding area is close to the tree line, affording scenic views of nearby mountains.
Fishing in Crescent Lake is very popular for trophy-size grayling. A rowboat with oars is available at the cabin, however, life jackets and fishing equipment are not provided. High winds could present a danger to anyone on the lake.
The 12x14-ft rustic cabin can sleep four people comfortably, but can accommodate up to eight. It is equipped with wooden bunks, a table, benches and a wood stove for heat. A splitting maul and crosscut saw are available. An outhouse is provided outside the cabin.
