Special Features

Cabin located about 100 yards (90 m) from the lake shore beside a spectacular series of cascading waterfalls. If the falls don't tempt you, then the view of steep granite walls and snow-capped peaks will. This glaciated valley is one of a kind and you are in the middle of it. The cabin is also surrounded by large old-growth spruce, hemlock, and cedar. Lake has one other cabin, Beaver Camp Cabin, on the south arm of the lake. Excellent fishing for cutthroat, dolly varden, and kokanee (land-locked salmon). Hunting for Sitka blacktail deer and black bear. Beaver, mink, and marten are common.
