Reservation and Fee Information


Reservation Information

Reservations can be made by Alaskan residents seven (7) months to-the day in advance of the first day of intended use and six (6) months in advance to-the day by non-residents. Reservations can extend up to the maximum stay limits which vary from 3 to 7 consecutive nights.

Cabin reservations may also be made on-line by clicking on the "See Cabin Availability" button. When you have located available dates, go to "make a reservation" and fill out the required information. When a reservation is accepted, a combined receipt and permit to use the cabin is issued. Print your permit as you must have this permit with you when occupying the cabin. Permits are issued for non-commercial purposes only, and on a first-come, first-serve basis.

A permit-day begins at 12:00 noon on the assigned day and ends at 12:00 noon on the following day. A detailed map and information pertaining to the specific cabin rented will be available upon making a reservation. Maximum stay limits vary from 3 to 7 consecutive nights. Cabin capacity varies from 3 to 8 people.

Reservations can also be made in person, by mail, or by fax at the offices below.

Nancy Lake Cabin #4

Fees are not refundable, although a one-time cabin credit can be given under certain circumstances. You must present the original receipt/permit to change a reservation or receive a cabin credit. A cabin credit can be issued: 1) If we receive your cancellation or change 7 calendar days in advance from the first day of the reservation; or 2) After 7 calendar days, if the cabin cannot be used due to events beyond control (e.g. natural disaster, extreme weather*, family emergency) or some fault of the Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation. A cabin credit is good for one year from the date of issue. A cabin credit may not be turned in for a refund. There is a service fee to change or cancel a reservation.

Cabin users are responsible for any damages to the cabins, associated facilities, or park resources. Please report any damages you may find to the local park office or the DNR Public Information Center.

PLEASE REMEMBER to print out your receipt and parking permit when making on-line reservations. You will receive two emails: one will be your receipt for the credit card transaction; the second will be from pic.dnr@alaska.gov with your reservation attached in a PDF format. Please check your SPAM filter if you do not receive the “PIC email". Two vehicles are allowed parking permits per cabin rental. Display the permit upon the dash board of your vehicle.

*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.
