- Fishing: dolly varden and rainbow trout good at creek mouths; excellent fishing in Dog Salmon Creek with sockeye salmon running July/August, silver salmon August/September, and steelhead September/November.
- Hunting: bear and deer.
- Frazer Fish Pass: from mid-May to mid-August Alaska Department of Fish and Game operates a weir and fish ladder on Dog Salmon Creek, enabling sockeye salmon to pass over a series of barrier falls and access their spawning grounds in Frazer Lake. A well developed walking trail from the outlet of the lake will take you approximately 3/4 of a mile to the fish pass, where Kodiak Wildlife Refuge maintains a primitive bear viewing pad. Refuge staff are not always present, but it has become a popular destination for guided bear viewers on day trips, as well as self-guided ones operating from the public use cabin. Outhouse bathroom facilities are available near the viewing pad.
- Accessing Dog Salmon: it is advisable to have a small inflatable raft or kayaks to access the lake outlet from the cabin. The alternative requires a 2 mile walk around the lake's shore and wading across Dog Salmon Creek in order to access the walking trail at the outlet.
- Primitive Conditions: no electricity, plumbing, or cookstove. Outdoor pit toilet only.
- Access by float plane only. Cabin is 80 air miles from City of Kodiak (approximately 55 minute flight).
- November 1 - March 31: reservations discouraged due to the possibility of lake freeze up.
