Northeast of Juneau on Taku Inlet
26 miles northeast of Juneau on Taku Inlet across from the Taku Glacier.
Access to the cabin is by shallow draft boat or floatplane, with 12 foot or higher tide levels recommended. high winds often prevent access in Taku Inlet. During summer months, the area is a travel corridor for boats and aircraft, so cabin users should expect some noise. Special Note: Due to the proximity of an eagle nest, cabin permit holders are not allowed helicopter access to the immediate vicinity of the cabin from March 1 to August 31.
The terrain surrounding the cabin site is a marsh estuary and sand beach with old growth spruce immediately adjacent to the cabin. The background area is a lightly forested bedrock hillside with steep canyons and cliffs.
Activities offered by the area include wildlife viewing, glacier viewing, sightseeing and photography, beach campfires, easy to very difficult hiking (no trails), fishing, bear, moose and mountain goat hunting in season. Check Alaska Department of Fish and Game regulations.
Season Of Use
Year-round. Cabin may be inaccessible by float plane due to frozen lake surface (planes cannot land) in fall, winter, and early spring.
