More Info

The seclusion of this cabin necessitates being prepared to handle any emergency situation. Tustumena Lake is a large glacial lake with recurring high wave situations. Inclement weather may cause an unexpected extension of the trip. The shore is exposed to southerly winds; large waves could swamp boats not pulled out on the beach; there is little beach area available during high water. Ice conditions depend on prevailing temperatures and are subject to change. Bringing a personal cooking stove is recommended. Carry in potable water or boil surface water 5 minutes before drinking. Remember to pack out your trash.
