HARRISON LAGOON CABIN, AK
part ofChugach National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Open year round. Season Dates
OverviewHarrison Lagoon Cabin is open for year-round enjoyment, offering a variety of recreational opportunities on land and in water. The cabin's remote location makes an ideal base for exploring the natural beauty of Prince William Sound.
The site can be accessed by float plane or boat, depending on conditions. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
Harrison Lagoon is located on the west side of Port Wells in Prince William Sound. The cabin is tucked into a stand of conifer trees on a gravel spit that separates the lagoon and the Sound. One side faces Port Wells, and the other faces the lagoon. The lagoon itself is surrounded by rocky shoreline and dense evergreen forest, with views of distant snow-capped mountains.
Guests who have kayaks can use them for exploring the coast or crossing the lagoon, which offers more hiking possibilities than the area around the cabin. It is possible to walk the lagoon at low tide, but tide tables should be consulted to time the return hike at low tide as well.
The 16 x 20 foot cabin sleeps 6 and is equipped with wooden bunks, a table with benches, a propane stove for heat and an outhouse with pit toilet. Propane may be available onsite during the summer season only (June-August).
