More Info

The seclusion of this cabin necessitates being prepared to handle any emergency situation. Skilak Lake is a large glacial lake with recurring high winds and waves. 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 and beach rocks are angular and sharp. Large, submerged rocks near shore present a hazard to approaching boats and floatplanes. Winter travelers should use particular caution due to hanging and intermittent ice conditions and thickness. Ice conditions particularly near the Kenai River inlet 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
