Overview

Overview

Kegan Cove Cabin offers visitors recreation, relaxation and a unique lodging experience on Prince of Wales Island in southeastern Alaska. The remote site provides a scenic setting for fishing, hiking, beachcombing and wildlife viewing, all within the vicinity of the cabin.

The site is accessible by boat or float plane at high tide. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

Natural Features:

Kegan Cove cabin is located in a protected saltwater cove on Moira Sound. The surrounding flat, coastal terrain is dotted with a Sitka spruce and western hemlock forest. At low tide, a 100 foot tidal flat emerges, exposing rock in front of the cabin.

Wildlife in the area is abundant, including eagles, shorebirds, Sitka black-tailed deer and black bears. Learn more about bear safety in the Tongass National Forest.

Recreation:

The location of the cabin is prime for anglers, offering both saltwater and freshwater fishing. Salmon runs draw both anglers and black bears to Kegan Creek. Rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, dolly varden, char, and salmon are also found in the nearby lakes, streams and ponds.

Hikers might also enjoy the easy half-mile trail along Kegan Creek that connects Kegan Cove to the cabin and Kegan Lake. Beachcombing is another popular pastime, searching the cove for sea-borne treasures.

Facilities:

The cabin is a 16 x 18 foot cedar/Sitka spruce log cabin furnished with wooden bunkbeds (without mattresses) that can sleep up to six people. The cabin is equipped with a table, benches, a wood stove for heat and an outside toilet. Other amenities include a cooking counter, shelves, cupboard space, and a broom.

The cabin does not have running water or electricity. Visitors must bring their own food, water, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, cook stove, stove fuel, fire starter, cooking gear/utensils, light source (lantern), toilet paper, first aid kit and garbage bags.

Firewood may be available, but the supply cannot be guaranteed. Guests are asked to be conservative with wood and use their cook stoves for cooking. Water is available from Kegan Creek, but must be filtered, boiled or chemically treated before drinking.
