LITTLE DRY ISLAND CABIN, AK
part ofTongass National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Open through Thu Dec 31 2015 Season Dates
OverviewLittle Dry Island Cabin was built in 1980 and is available for year-round recreational use and relaxation on the Stikine River delta in the Stikine-LaConte Wilderness. The secluded retreat gives guests a true back country experience in Alaska's beautiful Inside Passage.
The site can be accessed by float plane or shallow draft boat, depending on conditions. Access to the cabin requires at least a 15-foot tide for boats and a 17-foot tide for float planes. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin is perched on a low rock outcrop between tide flats and a forest of spruce and hemlock. The surrounding terrain is relatively flat with grass and shrubs growing on the tide flats. Wildflowers are prominent in May and June.
The waters around the cabin are ideal for exploring by kayak or canoe during high tide. The Forest Service does not provide boats, and guests must also bring their own flotation devices. Tide tables should be consulted before any boating excursion.
The 16-by-16 cabin (modified A-frame style) has two single bunks (one with a trundle bed) and a second-floor loft, to sleep up to seven people. It also has a table with benches, a wood heat stove, a woodshed with firewood, splitting maul, broom and an outhouse. A wooden cooler box for food storage is attached to the cabin.
