CABIN CLOSED PERMANENTLY due to damage from bat infestation.

Glatfelder cabin is a half mile walk from the campground and is accessible by boat in the summer. In the winter, the cabin may be accessed by snowmachine or skiing from the frozen lake, or by walking. The road into the recreation area is steep, so please use caution. Tire chains or 4-wheel drive is recommended in the winter. This cabin is available to rent year-round.

Cabin furnishings include plywood sleeping platforms, a kitchen counter, shelves, table and benches, wood stove, fire extinguisher, and an outdoor latrine. Firewood is not provided and can be hard to find at some cabins, so gather dead and down wood on your way in. For water, renters need to melt snow in the winter.

Please help keep it neat and attractive for those who will use it after your visit.

The turnoff to Quartz Lake is located at Mile 277.8 Richardson Highway, approximately 14 miles northwest of Delta Junction. Follow the access road 3 miles to the Quartz Lake State Recreation Area parking lot. The cabin is located ½-mile form the parking lot along the southwest edge of the lake.
