Northwest end of Lake Alexander


The cabin is in the central part of the island on the northwest end of Lake Alexander at an elevation of 350ft (107 m).


Access is by float plane or canoe with portage. It is about a 45-minute flight from Juneau. By canoe and portage, it is 3.5 miles (5.6 km) from Mole Harbor. Occasionally poor weather can result in extended stays, and cabin users should be prepared for this. In fall, winter, and early spring, the cabin may be inaccessible due to frozen lake surface (float planes cannot land). The lake is normally ice free from mid-May through November.


The cabin sits 30' (9 m) above the lake. There is a beach with some exposure to the sun.

Special Features

You are in brown bear country. There is a shelter at the opposite (east) end of the lake. A 2-3/4 mile (4.5 km) trail to salt water begins at the shelter. The lake is part of the Cross Admiralty Canoe route.
