OverviewShakes Slough 2 Cabin was built in 1963 and sits on the north bank of the Stikine River. It is within a few hundred feet of Shakes Slough 1 Cabin. The cabin is available year-round for relaxation and recreational use in the Stikine-LeConte Wilderness.

Shakes Lake and Glacier are three miles north of the cabin and offer excellent opportunities to view wildlife and scenery. This destination is only accessible by boat.
