More Info

The seclusion of this cabin necessitates being prepared to handle any emergency situation. Inclement weather may cause an unexpected extension of the trip. The shore is exposed to southwesterly winds; large waves could swamp boats not pulled out on the beach. There is little beach area available during high water. Large, submerged rocks near shore present a hazard to approaching boats and floatplanes. 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.
