5/16/22: The Eagle River bank is and has been eroding Infront of the Saturday Creek cabin, Alaska State Parks is working on a way to stop and repair the riverbank erosion immediately adjacent to the cabin area. The cabin is not in immediate danger of erosion, but care should always be taken around the riverbanks and any swift moving water. We hope to be able to address the situation soon and will notify any future reservation occupants the work/repair project may effect.

Eagle Beach State Recreation area is located at mile 28 on the Glacier Highway in Juneau. Summer recreation includes hiking, picnicking, berry picking, wildlife viewing, and photography. In the winter, the campground road is not plowed and the campground gate is locked from September 15 to the following spring (dependent on snow). If snow conditions allow bring a sled for transporting heavy gear. Winter recreation includes skiing, snowshoeing, photography, wildlife viewing and peace and quiet.

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. Winter snow conditions vary from wet and snowy to cold and clear. Average temperatures are in the 20's with extremes in the single digits.

The cabin is equipped with wooden sleeping platforms and primary heat source is a kerosene heater*.

Saturday Creek cabin is located right next to the Eagle Beach parking lot.
