Status: Open year round. Season Dates
OverviewKah Sheets Lake Cabin is an accessible, modified A-frame that was built in 1989. It is located on the south end of Kupreanof Island, above Kah Sheets Bay, in southeastern Alaska. It provides access to a secluded location, where fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing opportunities are abundant.
The cabin is accessible by float plane or by a boat and hiking trail combination. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin is located at the southeast end of Kah Sheets Lake at an elevation of 156 feet. The surrounding area is a mixture of muskeg and forest. The cabin is situated in an open area along the lake shore, near the outlet.
Kah Sheets is a Tlingit Indian term meaning "by the fisheries," as the area is well-known for fine salmon and trout fishing. Lake and stream fishing is available right outside the cabin's door. Two small rowboats with oars are provided, however, guests must bring their own life jackets. Guests may also choose to bring a small outboard motor. Hunting is also available in season in designated areas.
The modified A-frame cabin has two single wooden bunks, as well as a loft to accommodate up to seven people. It is equipped with an oil heater and an outdoor toilet. The cabin, outhouse and boardwalk are accessible to guests in wheelchairs.
