Point Bridget State Park is located 39 miles north of Juneau. Fishing is excellent during salmon runs in the fall off Berner's Bay beaches and in Cowee Creek. Beachcombing, wildlife viewing, hiking, and boating are among the diverse opportunities available. There are bears in the area, so please be aware and use caution.

The average temperatures in this area are 55° to 70° F during the spring and summer. High humidity and a high average rainfall make for a wet environment. Bring appropriate clothing and come prepared for unpredictable changes in weather. The cabins are equipped with wooden sleeping platforms, a kerosene stove, chairs or benches, table and latrine.

Non-potable water supply is from the creek. Please purify before using. Cabins are not furnished with mattresses.

Summer access: by foot or by small boats (can haul onto a beach). The foot trail begins at Point Bridget State Park Trailhead parking area at Mile 39 Glacier Highway. The trail is 2.5 miles to the cabin. Winter access: the same trail is open in the winter. Visitors can ski or snowshoe in, but no ATV's or other motorized vehicles are allowed.
