TWIN LAKES CABIN (AK), AK
part ofTongass National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Open through Thu Dec 31 2015 Season Dates
OverviewTwin Lakes Cabin, built in 1963, sits on the mouth of Twin Lakes Slough on the Stikine River in the Stikine-LeConte Wilderness. It is open year-round for relaxation and recreational use in Alaska's beautiful Inside Passage.
The site can be accessed by shallow draft boat, float plane or kayak, depending on conditions. Low river levels can affect access to the cabin and Twin Lakes. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin sits on relatively flat land facing Limb Island and the upper end of Hooligan Slough. The surrounding trees are primarily Sitka spruce, cottonwood, alder and willow. The vegetation in front of the cabin is mostly grass, with meadows nearby.
Fishing is possible in Dog Salmon Creek (North Arm Creek) about 1.7 miles west of the cabin. Cutthroat trout is available from May through September. Salmon fishing includes chum, pink in July and August, and silver in August and September.
The 16-by-16 cabin (A-frame style) has two single bunks (one with a trundle bed) and a second-floor loft, to sleep up to seven people. The cabin also has a table with benches, oil stove (No.1 oil only), broom and outhouse. The partially covered front porch has a built-in bench and wooden cooler box for food storage.

Getting There:GPS Info. (Latitude, Longitude):
Located on the north side of the Stikine River near Figure 8 Lake (Twin Lakes), in the Stikine-LeConte Wilderness. The cabin is 17 miles from Wrangell, accessible by shallow draft boat or float plane during moderate to high river levels. A minimum 16-foot river level is generally needed for float plane landings. Low river levels limit small boat access as Hooligan Slough becomes shallow or blocked.
A tide of 14 feet or higher is required for a shallow draft boat to cross the tide flats. The river is normally ice-free May to October. Please check local conditions ahead of time by calling the Wrangell Ranger District at (907) 874-2323.
