Green Island Cabin offers guests a remote lodging experience in the Chugach National Forest. Situated on the northwest side of Green Island, the cabin offers guests year-round recreation and relaxation. Fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing are available within the area.
Access to the cabin is by float plane or boat. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities. This facility is wheelchair-accessible.
Anglers will find several creeks flowing into the bay. In mid-July, pink salmon spawn in most of the little creeks, and coho arrive in August. Some of the lakes in the area have good-sized cutthroat trout and Dolly Varden. Fishing for halibut and rockfish in the nearby ocean waters is accessible with a boat.
Hunters can take advantage of a long hunting season on the island. Sitka black-tailed deer can be challenging to hunt, but worth traversing the terrain.
The cabin is 16-by-20 and fully wheelchair-accessible. It is furnished with wooden bunks that sleep up to six guests. Other amenities include a table, benches, wood and oil stoves for heat, a rainwater catchment barrel, axe, splitting maul, saw and an outdoor pit toilet.
The cabin does not have running water, electricity, cut firewood or heating oil. Visitors must bring their own water for drinking, cooking and washing, as well as #1 stove oil for the oil stove.
Visitors must bring food, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, a cook stove, matches, cooking gear, lanterns or flashlights, toilet paper, a first aid kit and garbage bags. All trash and food must be packed out, and visitors are expected to clean the cabin before leaving.
The cabin is located on Green Island between Gibbon Anchorage (a shallow bay) and Prince William Sound. The surrounding terrain is a spruce and hemlock forest with boggy muskeg openings. Wildlife in the area abounds, including migratory waterfowl and Sitka black-tailed deer.
The beaches on the Prince William Sound shoreline offer expansive views of the water and surrounding mountains. Occasionally, humpback and killer whales can be seen spouting offshore. Sea otters and other sea mammals are in the area as well.
