Pigot Bay Cabin is tucked away in a secluded and picturesque area of Prince William Sound.
The site can be accessed by float plane or boat, depending on conditions. The cabin is reached via a staircase from the beach.
Pigot Bay Cabin is located on 12 foot tall bluff overlooking Pigot Bay. The bay is mostly steep-sided, but has a wide outwash valley at its head. The cabin sits at the edge of a dense evergreen forest, offering views over the bay to the mountains and glaciers beyond.
The topography is very rugged, which limits hiking in the area. Visitors can bring kayaks to explore the bay and along the coast of Port Wells, but should consult the local tide reports in advance for their safety.
Fishing is fair for pink salmon in late July and early August in freshwater streams and the saltwater of the bay. Saltwater fishing is possible for halibut and red snapper (rockfish) near Pigot Bay and the western shore of Esther Island.
Pigot Bay also offers some good shrimping spots. Digging for butter clams is possible on the few gravel beaches at the head of the bay. Hunting for deer and bear is allowed in designated seasons with the proper permits. Blueberries and raspberries are also available for picking in season.

What To Bring
Visitors must bring their own supply of drinking water, especially since natural sources may be difficult to access. Any water from natural sources should be treated before drinking.
Visitors arriving in winter need to bring a supply of propane. The propane hookup at the cabin is the same as a standard gas barbecue grill. Items such as a cook stove, cooking gear, flashlights or lanterns, bedding, sleeping pads, trash bags and toilet paper are not provided.
