Overview

Overview

Staney Creek Cabin offers visitors recreation, relaxation and a unique lodging experience on Prince of Wales Island in Alaska's Tongass National Forest. The remote site offers a scenic setting for fishing, hiking, hunting and wildlife viewing, all within the vicinity of the cabin.

The site can be accessed by vehicle and a half-mile hike, boat or by float plane. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

Natural Features:

The cabin sits at the mouth of Staney Creek, a grassy tidal meadow, and is surrounded by a canopy of old-growth spruce, hemlock and cedar.

Wildlife in the area abounds, including a variety of waterfowl, shore birds, bald eagles, Sitka black-tailed deer and black bears. Learn more about bear safety in the Tongass National Forest.

Recreation:

The cabin is an excellent location for anglers, as the stream supports cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, dolly varden, steelhead and four species of salmon.

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.

Facilities:

The cabin is a 12 x 12-foot primitive, pre-cut cedar log cabin (pan-abode style) furnished with wooden bunkbeds (without mattresses) that sleep 4-6 guests.

The cabin is equipped with a table, benches, propane heater (propane provided) and an outdoor toilet. Other amenities include a cooking counter, fire extinguisher and a broom.

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

There are no dependable freshwater sources near the cabin, so visitors should be sure to bring plenty of their own water for drinking, cooking and washing. Click here for more cabin details.
