Overview

Romig Cabin is a remote and rustic place to stay amid south-central Alaska's vast mountain terrain. It is one of several Forest Service cabins along the same trail, and overlooks scenic Juneau Lake. It provides access to the great outdoors, trails and wildlife viewing.

The cabin is located 9 miles from the south trailhead on the Resurrection Pass Trail. It can be accessed by hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, floatplane and snowmobiles during open seasons. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

Natural Features:

The cabin is located north of Sterling Highway, set back from the southern shore of Juneau Lake at an elevation of 1,300 feet. It is surrounded by a willow, spruce and birch forest on hilly ground overlooking the lake and surrounding mountains. It is not very secluded. A variety of wildlife makes its home in the area.

For more information on access and regulations pertaining to this cabin, trail conditions, safety precautions and outdoor safety and ethics, please contact the Seward District office.

Recreation:

Visitors enjoy boating and fishing for rainbow trout, whitefish, burbot and grayling in Juneau Lake, which is a short hike down a dirt path from the cabin. A canoe with paddles is provided at the cabin. Fishing equipment is not provided and permits are required to fish or hunt in the state, click here to learn more about Alaska Department of Fish & Game regulations. Nearby Juneau Creek has Dolly Varden, rainbow trout and grayling as well.

In season, visitors hunt for moose, black and brown bears and wolves in the surrounding forest. Hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling (during open seasons) are also popular in the area.

Facilities:

The 14x17' cabin can accommodate up to eight people, but sleeps four more comfortably. It is equipped with wooden bunks, a table, benches and a wood stove for heat. A splitting maul and crosscut saw are available. An outhouse is provided outside the cabin.

There is no electricity, potable water, mattresses, bedding, cooking utensils or cut firewood at the cabin. Visitors should bring sleeping bags and pads, a cook stove, cooking gear and food. Water taken from the lake should be treated or boiled before consumption.
