This framed 12 x 20 cabin about 45 miles from Fairbanks is wired for electricity and offers a partitioned sleeping area, with space for up to four adults and a bit of privacy. Located inside the Granite Tors Campground, the cabin is a great base for exploring both the Chena Hot Springs Winter Trail (also known as the Yukon Quest Trail) and the 15-mile Granite Tors Trail, with trailhead across the highway.


The cabin includes a woodstove, small table, kitchen counter, bunk beds and a sleeping platform. To use the electrical outlets, visitors will need to bring a generator with a double male plug on the power cord.


4 people (pets welcome)




Turn into the Granite Tors Campground at Mile 39.5 of the Chena Hot Springs Road: The cabin is located at Site #1.


The cabin nestles in a spruce-birch river bottom on the river inside the 254,000-acre recreation area. The park is known for its rich wildlife habitat, with many sloughs and wetlands, plus timbered rolling hills and trail access to high country. Decent fishing. Visiting is an outstanding way to experience the riverine habitat of Alaska’s Interior country.

What to Bring

Guests probably should bring drinking water, or be prepared to purify river water or melt snow. It’s best to bring your own firewood because the adjacent woods will be picked over. Items such as a cook stove, cooking gear, flashlights or lanterns, bedding, sleeping pads and trash bags are not provided. Guests are expected to pack out trash and clean the cabin before leaving. Don’t assume there will be sufficient toilet paper or working batteries in the smoke detector.
