About This Campground

Alsek River Cabin is located on the Yukutat Forelands about a mile from the Alsek River, a large river known for its many glaciers. This cabin is open year-round and offers relaxation as well as excellent hunting opportunites.

The site can be accessed by wheeled plane, depending on conditions. An airstrip is adjacent to the cabin. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

Recreation

Moose hunting is available in the surrounding area, and mountain goat hunting is excellent in the Brabazon Range 2 miles to the east. Hunters must have the proper licenses and hunt only in designated seasons.

Facilities

This 14x16-ft. hunter-style cabin sleeps four people with four single wooden bunks. The cabin has a table and benches, broom, an oil heater and food preparation space. An outhouse, picnic table and 12x12-ft. meat shed are located outside. Water, heating oil and electricity are not provided. Visitors must supply their own drinking water as well as #1 diesel oil or kerosene for the heater. One gallon can last 2-10 hours, depending on the heat setting. Other items to bring include sleeping bags, sleeping pads, food, a cooking stove, cookware, plates, utensils, lanterns or flashlights, toilet paper, garbage bags, a fire extinguisher and fire starter. Visitors are expected to pack out trash and clean the cabin before leaving. Click here for more cabin details.

Natural Features

The terrain is flat and very wet, and the cabin sits on predominantly open muskeg with dense patches of alder, cottonwood and willow. The snow-capped peaks of the Brabazon Mountain Range loom over the surrounding area.

Brown and black bears are common here, and moose can often be found in the willow thickets. Sandhill cranes stop in this vicinity during spring and fall migrations. Wild strawberries are available for picking around the airstrip.
