- Hiking/wildlife Viewing: There are no developed hiking trails. Easy access behind the cabin along a string of beaver ponds is worth exploring. Also recommended is walking the beach to north, and exploring the creeks that flow into the head of the bay (be sure to know the tides; high tide may limit your return to the cabin).

- Fishing: pink and/or silver salmon can be caught right off the beaches, out in the bay, and in the rivers, between July and September; dungeness crab can be caught with traps in the bay.
- Additionally: a small, inflatable boat will greatly increase your access to places such as Alpine Cove to the east, and Horse Marine Lake to the southwest.

- Access by float plane or boat only. Cabin is 67 air miles from City of Kodiak (approximately 45 minute flight).
- This large cabin can be difficult to keep warm in winter months. Bring plenty of fuel.
