This spacious cabin includes a woodstove, counter space, as well as tables and benches. The cabin has electricity but renters should plan for alternative lighting and cooking as power outages happen frequently.

The loop road into the Tent Campground is not plowed in the winter. Groomed ski trails may be available when snow conditions are favorable. Visitors and cabin renters must park their vehicles at either the day-use parking lot or parking lot before the RV/ Tent Campgrounds to access winter trails and public use cabins. Cabin renters should plan for hauling gear on unmaintained winter trails for approximately 1/10th of a mile.

Special Notes:
* Winter ski trails are closed to snowmobiles, but areas are open to ride north to Troublesome Creek and beyond. Snowmobiles allowed for general access to the cabins with sufficient snow. When the Chulitna River freezes well, crossing it opens vast expanses to riding in the foothills of the Alaska Range, and the groomed snowmobile trails in the Bunco Lake/Peters hills area. Off-road vehicles prohibited in the park. Snowmobile openings announced when there is sufficient snow cover to protect underlying vegetation. Check the Denali State Park park condition reports for trail conditions and snowmobile openings.

** Pets must be under control at all times and you are responsible for cleaning up your pet's waste.

Pack out everything you pack in.
