Description

This is a typical Pan Abode cabin. An old CCC shelter is on site providing an additional covered area.

Facilities

The water source is poor. Admiralty Creek has a tide water influx at high tides. Treat all water before using.

Capacity

4 to 6 people

Area

Young Bay

Location

The cabin is next to a fishing stream in Admiralty Cove, a small open cove within Young Bay on the northern tip of the Admiralty Island, ¼ mile (400 m) up a trail from saltwater.

Access

Access is by float plane or boat. It is about a 1/4-hour flight or a 20-minute boat ride from Juneau and requires a 13'+ incoming tide. There is a large tide flat in Admiralty Cove. Much of the cove goes dry as the tide recedes. Occasionally poor weather can result in extended stays, and cabin users should be prepared for this.

Terrain

The cabin rests on a level bench overlooking Admiralty Creek and a large grassy tidal meadow.

Special Features

You are in brown bear country. Bears frequent the area and trail particularly during salmon runs July through August. In addition to fishing, popular activities include wildlife viewing (brown bear, deer, and waterfowl can often be seen in the nearby area), berry picking and beach combing. The Admiralty Cove-Young Lake trail is a 4.5 mile trail that departs from the cabin and ends at the North Young Lake cabin. It is a relatively flat trail and follows the creek at each end of the trail. The round trip hike can be fairly strenuous when conditions are very wet.
