Other Public Use Cabins in Alaska

US Forest Service
Chugach National Forest is located in Southcentral Alaska and the Prince William Sound area. There are just over 40 cabins available for public use. The Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska has over 150 cabins.

The majority of cabins are accessed by plane or boat. Those accessible by trail tend to be more popular and are reserved months in advance. It is best to obtain a map of cabin locations and start planning early for making cabin reservations.

Bureau of Land Management
The White Mountains National Recreation Area has over 200 miles of winter trails with several cozy log cabins built at scenic locations along the trail system. These remote cabins are used by skiers, dog mushers and snow machiners. The wet and marshy trail conditions allow only one of these cabins, Lee's Cabin, to be suitable for summer use. There is one cabin, Fred Blixt Cabin, near the roadside which is not part of the White Mountains system. This cabin is also available for rent year round.
