Overview

Overview

Turner Lake East Cabin is open for year-round enjoyment in Alaska's Inside Passage. Guests can enjoy scenic views, wildlife watching and a variety of recreational activities.

The site can be accessed by float plane, depending on conditions. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety and must bring several of their own amenities.

Natural Features:

The cabin sits on relatively flat and brushy terrain and offers views of spectacular mountain scenery with numerous waterfalls cascading into the lake. A small sandy beach is located in front of the cabin.

This area is home to bears and mountain goats (bear safety information). A variety of waterfowl may be spotted on the lake.

Recreation:

A skiff with oars is provided to use around the lake, but guests must supply their own flotation devices. Anglers can fish for cutthroat trout, Dolly Varden and kokanee salmon in the lake.

Mountain goat or bear hunting is allowed with a permit in designated seasons. Salmonberries are available for picking in the summer.

Facilities:

This 14-by-16 cabin is pan-abode style and sleeps six people with two single and two double bunks. The cabin also has a table and benches, broom, an oil heater, a cooler box for food storage, a campfire ring, an outhouse and food preparation space.

Water and electricity are not provided. Water is available from the lake or a nearby stream, but guests should be sure to treat water before drinking or cooking with it (water safety tips). It is recommended that guests bring their own water supply.

Heating oil is not provided. Visitors must bring a supply of #1 diesel oil or kerosene (a gallon per day on lowest setting), in addition to sleeping bags, sleeping pads, a cooking stove, lanterns or flashlights, cookware, plates, utensils, food, 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).
