Kegan Cove Cabin heating upgrade.: There is currently not a functional heat source at Kegan Cove Cabin, as we are transitioning from propane to an oil stove. When the new oil stove is installed, this site will be updated accordingly. We hope to have this work completed by April 1, 2015. Thank you for your patience.

OverviewKegan Cove Cabin offers visitors recreation, relaxation and a unique lodging experience on Prince of Wales Island in southeastern Alaska. The remote site provides a scenic setting for fishing, hiking, beachcombing and wildlife viewing, all within the vicinity of the cabin.
The site is accessible by boat or float plane at high tide. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
Kegan Cove cabin is located in a protected saltwater cove on Moira Sound. The surrounding flat, coastal terrain is dotted with a Sitka spruce and western hemlock forest. At low tide, a 100 foot tidal flat emerges, exposing rock in front of the cabin.
The location of the cabin is prime for anglers, offering both saltwater and freshwater fishing. Salmon runs draw both anglers and black bears to Kegan Creek. Rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, dolly varden, char, and salmon are also found in the nearby lakes, streams and ponds.
The cabin is a 16 x 18 foot cedar/Sitka spruce log cabin furnished with wooden bunkbeds (without mattresses) that can sleep up to six people. The cabin is equipped with a table, benches, a wood stove for heat and an outside toilet. Other amenities include a cooking counter, shelves, cupboard space, and a broom.
