OverviewSevenfathom Bay Cabin is located 22 miles southeast of Sitka, Alaska on Baranof Island. This cabin is generally available year-round, weather permitting, and was built in April 1991 by a group of local Sitka volunteers.
This is a remote site. The cabin can be accessed from Sitka via a 1.5-hour boat ride or a 15-minute floatplane ride. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring their own amenities.
The cabin is located north of West Crawfish Inlet, just outside the South Baranof Wilderness Area on the southwest side of Baranof Island. The cabin is surrounded by nearly flat terrain at the head of Sevenfathom Bay. Brown bear frequent the area.
Many hiking opportunities are available near the cabin, despite a lack of established trails. The South Baranof Wilderness Area can be accessed within five minutes by boat.
The 16 by 16-ft wood A-frame cabin can accommodate up to eight people. A large deck extends across the front of the cabin. A sleeping loft accessed by vertical ladder, a wooden double bunk, table and benches, wood heating stove, cooking counter, broom, axe and maul are provided. An outhouse toilet is close to the cabin.
Popular Goddard Hot Springs is about 20 minutes north of the cabin by boat. Soaking tubs are provided on a first-come, first-served basis by the City and Borough of Sitka.
