Overview

Overview

Dale Clemens Cabin is a rustic cabin in south-central Alaska. It offers great views of the surrounding mountain peaks, and Resurrection Bay and Seward in the distance. Visitors enjoy hunting and exploring, as well as fishing in nearby Lost Lake.

The cabin can be accessed via either a nearly 5-mile moderate trek during the summer months, or a 2.5-mile steep climb from the Lost Lake Trailhead in the winter. It is open year-round, though conditions may impact travel plans. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

Natural Features:

The cabin is located west of Seward Highway at an elevation of about 1,750 feet. The cabin sits just above tree line, amid mountain meadows and groves of hemlock and spruce trees, as well as grasses and abundant wildflowers.

Winter snow can linger into July and the cabin is susceptible to heavy fog and rain in the summer, as well as whiteout conditions in the winter.

A variety of wildlife makes its home in the area. For more information on access and regulations pertaining to this cabin, trail conditions, safety precautions and outdoor safety and ethics, please contact the Seward District office.

Recreation:

Visitors enjoy fishing for rainbow trout in Lost Lake. Hunting is available in season for moose, black and brown bears, wolves, mountain goats and ptarmigan.

Hiking, horseback riding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling are also popular activities.

Facilities:

The recently renovated two-story cabin has two entrances via stairways at ground level. A wooden deck with seating overlooks the surrounding peaks. A cupboard containing multiple propane tanks, stocked by the Forest Service, is located on the porch. Propane may not always be available.

Inside the cabin are wooden bunks and a loft that will sleep up to eight people. A table and benches, propane heater and lighting are also provided. An outdoor toilet is close to the cabin.

Water for drinking, cooking and cleaning purposes is not available at the cabin. Visitors will need to bring their own sleeping bags and pads, a cook stove, cooking gear, water and food, among other necessities. It may be necessary to bring a 20-pound propane cylinder; contact the Seward Ranger District for more information.

Nearby Attractions:

Resurrection Peak and Mt. Ascension tower above the area, at 4,700 and 5,700 feet respectively.
