The cabin is located north of Sterling Highway, set back from the eastern tip of Swan Lake.
Access is by float plane or hiking. From Resurrection Pass Trail South Trailhead, hike 12.8 miles to the cabin or take a floatplane (30 minutes from Moose Pass, 15 minutes from Cooper Landing).
The cabin is surrounded by a spruce and birch forest with views of the lake and nearby mountains.
You can enjoy boating and fishing for rainbow trout, lake trout, Dolly Varden and sockeye salmon in Swan Lake. Berry picking is a fun activity mid-July through mid-September when the native berries ripen. In season, you can hunt for moose, black and brown bears, Dall sheep, mountain goats, caribou and wolves in the surrounding forest.
