Overview

Overview

Point Amargura Cabin offers guests a unique lodging experience on San Fernando Island in southeastern Alaska. The remote site offers a scenic setting for fishing, hunting, 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:

Point Amargura Cabin is located at the southern end of San Fernando Island, east of Prince of Wales Island near the community of Craig. Sitka spruce and western hemlock dominate the level land surrounding the cabin. Steeper terrain rises nearby.

Wildlife in the area is abundant and includes eagles, shorebirds, Sitka black-tailed deer and black bears. Visitors are encouraged to Learn about bear safety in the Tongass National Forest.

Recreation:

The location of the cabin is excellent for anglers. Pink, chum, silver and king salmon are plentiful throughout the year, as well as halibut and bottom fish in the open water.

Hunters can take advantage of the long hunting season in the surrounding national forest. Bear season occurs during spring and fall, while deer season begins in late summer and lasts through the late fall.

Beachcombing is another popular pastime for guests seeking sea-borne treasures.

Facilities:

The cabin is a 15 x 17 foot cedar, metal-roofed cabin, furnished with a loft floor that sleeps four, and one double wooden bunkbed without mattresses that sleeps two. The large deck does meet accessibility standards.

The cabin is equipped with a table, benches, a wood stove for heat and an outside toilet. Other amenities include a cooking space, fire extinguisher, axe and a broom. 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.

The cabin does not have running water or electricity. Guests 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.

There is no fresh water source available at Point Amagura Cabin or in the surrounding area, therefore guests must bring a sufficient supply for drinking, cooking, washing and cleaning.
