Caribou Creek Cabin (Nabesna Rd)

This small cabin sleeps two and provides a base camp from which to explore game trails and ridgelines with excellent views of Mount Wrangell, Mount Sanford and Tanada peaks. It’s located at the end of 3-mile Caribou Creek Trail, which is sometimes accessible by recreational ATV (check with National Park Service first), as well as snow machines when there’s at least 6 inches of snow on the ground. As with other public use cabins in this area, you must pack everything in and out. That includes your firewood, unless you want to gather deadwood on site. The small size of the cabin means it does get toasty pretty quickly. Reservations are required through the NPS. Call (907) 822-7253 or email [email protected].
