Status: Open year round. Season Dates
OverviewShrode Lake Cabin is open year-round, offering the opportunity to enjoy both summer and winter recreation in beautiful Prince William Sound. The cabin is in a secluded location that provides a true backcountry experience.
The site can be accessed by float plane or boat, depending on conditions. Those arriving by boat should be prepared to hike 1 mile to the cabin from where the boat anchors at Long Bay. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
Shrode Cabin is situated on the northeastern shore of Shrode Lake, a freshwater lake near Long Bay, which is just off Culross Passage in Prince William Sound. Shrode Lake is separated from the saltwater Long Bay by a lagoon.
Hike on the 1 mile trail to Long Bay or hike to Jack Lake, which is a half-mile from the cabin. Threefingers Cove to the west of Shrode Lake is another beautiful hiking destination. The Jack Lake and Threefingers Cove trails are primitive trails and may require some route finding.
The cabin is a 16 x 16 foot A-frame with a main floor and a sleeping loft. It accommodates up to 6 people and comes equipped with wooden bunks, a kerosene heater, a table, benches, broom, fire extinguisher and an outhouse with a pit toilet.

Getting There:GPS Info. (Latitude, Longitude):
Access by float plane is 45 minutes from Anchorage and 55 minutes from Cordova. By boat the trip is 25 miles from Whittier into Long Bay, then an additional 1mile hike on a trail to reach the lake.
Boats should anchor in Long Bay. Only shallow-draft vessels can proceed during high tide as far as the lagoon at the head of Long Bay. Numerous rock hazards are in the channel and lagoon.
In fall, winter, spring and early summer, the cabin may be inaccessible by float plane due to frozen lake surface. Ice has been observed on Shrode Lake as late as July. Contact the Glacier Ranger District office (907) 783-3242 for information prior to making reservations during these periods.
