Overview

Overview

Middle Dangerous River Cabin is situated near the bank of the Dangerous River about 30 miles southeast of Yakutat. This remote retreat is open year-round, offering scenic views, wildlife watching and hunting opportunities.

The site can be accessed by jetboat or hiking a 4-mile trail from the Dangerous River Bridge. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

Natural Features:

The cabin sits on flat and wet terrain, surrounded by willow and alder thickets and scattered cottonwood trees. Visitors enjoy spectacular views of the Dangerous River and its many gravel bars, which attract nesting gulls.

Brown and black bears are common in this area, and moose can sometimes be seen in the surrounding willow thickets. Sandhill cranes and geese visit the area during spring and fall migration.

Recreation:

The Dangerous River is a large glacial river with numerous logjams, sandbars and floating ice. Non-motorized boats are not recommended, and boaters should use extreme caution when navigating the river.

Moose hunting is excellent in season and requires the proper permit.

Facilities:

This 12x16-ft. hunter style cabin sleeps four people with four single wooden bunks. The cabin also has a table and benches, broom, an oil heater and food preparation space. An outhouse, campfire ring and 12x12-ft. meat shed are located outside.

Water, heating oil and electricity are not provided. Visitors must supply their own drinking water as well as #1 diesel oil or kerosene for the heater. One gallon can last 2-10 hours, depending on the heat setting. An empty 5-gallon tank is provided.

Other items to bring include sleeping bags, sleeping pads, food, a cooking stove, cookware, plates, utensils, lanterns or flashlights, toilet paper, garbage bags, a fire extinguisher and fire starter. Visitors are expected to pack out trash and clean the cabin before leaving. Click here for more cabin details.
