OverviewLog Jam Cabin offers guests a remote lodging experience on Montague Island in southeastern Alaska. Located on the northeast side of Stump Lake, the cabin offers guests year-round recreation and relaxation. Fishing, hunting, kayaking, beachcombing and wildlife viewing are within walking distance of the facility.
Access to the cabin is by float plane or wheeled plane only, typically 45 minutes from either Cordova or Seward. Those arriving by wheeled plane should be prepared to hike three-quarters of a mile to the cabin. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
Montague Island is in the Gulf of Alaska at the entrance to Prince William Sound. The cabin is situated on 80-acre Stump Lake near low hills rising from a thick spruce and hemlock forest. An understory of muskeg, shrubs and grasses blanket the area.
Anglers will find that Montague Island is a prime fishing location. Cutthroat trout and Dolly Varden are the most abundant fish near the cabin. They can be caught off of the rocky points or near the pond lily beds around the lake with fly fishing or spinning gear. Pink, coho and sockeye salmon come into the lake, but the populations are relatively small. The best spot for coho and pink salmon fishing is in the ocean or at the mouth of the creek at high tide.
The cabin is a 12-by-14 foot rustic structure equipped with wooden bunks that sleep up to six guests. It is equipped with a table, benches, wood and oil stove for heat, saw, axe, splitting maul, a rainwater catchment barrel and an outdoor pit toilet.
