How do I make Cabin Reservations online?
when you make reservations.
COOKIES MUST BE ACCEPTED for the pages used to rent/pay for cabins. Otherwise
the session times out. Please do not make reservations on a smart phone, programming is incompatible and you will need a printed receipt to access the cabins. Do not use the back button or bookmark your reservation, you will receive a confirmation via email with all your reciepts.
Find the cabin of your choice then check the available cabin date. Dates with the # sign are not available. The "Make Reservation" link is below the cabin name in green.
Read the terms and conditions of online reservations. By clicking the
"I Agree" you are authorizing the State of Alaska to make your
reservations and charge your credit card for the reservation fee. In addition,
you are aware of and agree to all the terms on this page.
Please enter your intended check-in and check-out dates. Enter required
information and click on the "Submit" button. Payment must be
made in full when you make the reservation.
Continue to the next page and review the summary of your reservations.
If the information is correct proceed to the payment page. If not, make
corrections. If you make corrections the Alaska Resident button will reset to non-resident. Continue to online payment page.
Making reservations online with your credit card is convenient and safe.
Alaska State Parks uses a Secure Commerce Server that works with Netscape,
Internet Explorer and most web browsers to encrypt your credit card information
as it is sent to secure sites. When you see the blue key or a closed lock
at the bottom of your screen, you can make payments with confidence.
Whether you call or go online, you may make reservations the same day up to 7 months in advance of your first night's stay. "Seven months in advance" counts back to the nearest business day. If you count back seven months from the date you want to rent a cabin, and end up on a weekend or holiday, the next business day is the earliest you may make a reservation online or on the phone. Our business days start at 10 a.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays.
Length of stay
Length of stay is limited to the maximum days allowed per cabin within any 30-day period.
Payment and payment methods
Payment is required when you make an online reservation by credit card only. Payment can be made by either VISA or MasterCard.
The earliest you may check-in to all cabins is 12:00 noon. Check-out time is 12:00 noon the following day or last day of reservation. Ice hut rental check-in is 12:01 am to 11:59 pm the day of the rental. No overnight camping.
Reservation Changes or Cancellations
Changes or cancellations must be made through the Public Information Center at 269-8400 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Any change made to a reservation is subject to a $10 non-refundable transaction fee and must be made 7 days prior to your first night stay.

Requests for credit must be made within 3 business days of the last date of your reservation. Extreme weather in the Northern Region is defined as Minus 30° F for the "North Fork" and "Chena River" Cabins, Minus 20° F for all other cabins and ice huts.
If you cancel at least 7 days prior to the start of your reservation for reasons not listed above, you may request a credit. There is a $10 service charge for each reservation change or cancellation except for those reasons listed above. If you fail to cancel in a timely manner, or fail to use the facility for reasons other than those listed above, cabin credit is not available. YOU MUST PRESENT YOUR ORIGINAL RECEIPT/PERMIT, OR PROVIDE A VALID RESERVATION NUMBER TO CHANGE A RESERVATION OR RECEIVE A RENTAL CREDIT. YOU MAY CANCEL VIA PHONE AT (907) 451-2705.
