It has a large front deck that overlooks Nakwasina Sound and is an excellent base for saltwater fishing and deer hunting.

The site can be accessed only by float plane or boat, weather permitting. Travel time from Sitka is 10 minutes by float plane or 30 minutes by boat. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

The two-story Pan Abode-style log cabin sleeps 15 people and measures 20 by 20 feet. It has a large front deck and second-floor balconies on both the front and back of the cabin. The main level contains a single bunk bed, a table, benches and cooking counters. The second level, accessed by a stairway, is an open sleeping loft with one single bunk bed and two double bunk beds. An oil heating stove (oil is not supplied) and a broom are provided. An outhouse is located outside. Guests must bring a supply of #1 diesel fuel (10 gallons for a three-day stay, more or less depending on time of year), as well as sleeping bags and pads, a cooking stove, pots, pans, plates, utensils, food, toilet paper, a lantern, garbage bags, a fire extinguisher and fire starter.

Natural Features

The cabin is set at the edge of a tall, dense hemlock-spruce forest on Nakwasina Sound. The cabin faces south, overlooking Nakwasina Sound.

In the early 1960s, several forested areas in Nakwasina Sound were harvested. During the summer, the vegetation pattern in these areas appears more dense and a brighter green, with an overstory of alder and an understory of spruce and hemlock.
Brown bear frequent the area. Learn about bear safety and precautions.
