part ofChugach National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Open through Wed Dec 31 2014 Season Dates
OverviewTiedeman Slough Cabin offers guests recreation, relaxation and a unique lodging experience in the Chugach National Forest. The remote site offers a scenic setting for birding, hunting and wildlife viewing, all within close distance from the cabin.
Access to the cabin is by float plane at high tide or by boat. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin is located on the east bank of the tidal slough in a low-lying area blanketed with alder and willow. Ponds dot the boggy landscape.
Bird watching is exceptional near this cabin. Anglers will need to travel upstream of the boat launch to Alaganik Slough to find productive fishing waters, as fishing near the cabin is poor because of water turbidity. In Alaganik Slough, however, silver salmon run from August to September, and sockeye salmon are abundant in late June through July.
The cabin is a 12 x 14 rustic structure furnished with wooden bunkbeds without mattresses that sleep up to six guests. The cabin is equipped with a table, oil stove, rainwater catchment barrel and an outdoor pit toilet.
