EAGLE LAKE CABIN, AK
part ofTongass National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Open through Thu Dec 31 2015 Season Dates
OverviewEagle Lake Cabin is available for year-round and is located on the mainland, within Alaska's beautiful Inside Passage. This secluded retreat offers a true back country experience, relaxation and access to a variety of recreational activities.
The site can only be accessed by float plane, depending on conditions. The lake freezes in winter, which may prevent float planes from landing. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin sits on a gravel outwash, with a view over Eagle Lake. The surrounding rainforest is primarily Sitka spruce and western hemlock with scattered cedar. Steep hills provide the backdrop for the cabin and the lake.
Anglers can fish for cutthroat trout in the lake from May through September. Guests can use the provided skiff with oars, but must provide their own flotation devices.
The 12-by-14 cabin (hunter-style) has two single and two double bunks, to sleep up to six people. It is also equipped with a table and benches, broom, wood stove and an outhouse toilet. A bear-proof food storage locker is provided. A woodshed is also on the premises, and is stocked with firewood and a splitting maul.
