The US Forest Service owns little cabins all over AK and each varies in amenities, age, distance, etc. This one is almost 10 miles of moderate hiking from the trailhead, so is serious backpacking (not a drive-up campground). The view from the cabin is exceptional, as is the whole trail. There’s wildlife galore and a canoe at the lake to use for free. We weren’t there when it was cold enough to use the wood stove, but it gave the cabin so much character. Make sure to bring everything you need (just like normal backpacking). You can do cabin-to-cabin hiking using a number of USFS cabins in this area, but the hiking is not easy.
Juneau is a campers wonderland. Honestly, you can't go wrong - especially if you're utilizing the Forest Service cabins sprinkled all over Alaska. This particular cabin was in amazing condition, and very clean. We loved every second of the Alaskan atmosphere here - complete with wildlife.
A great cabin located on the resurrection pass trail.
