About This Campground

Overview

Upper Paradise Lake Cabin is extremely remote and secluded in the forest of south-central Alaska. The cabin provides access to fishing and hunting, as well as day hikes that warrant spectacular views of glaciers.

The cabin is accessible only by floatplane and access is extremely difficult in the winter when the lake freezes. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

Recreation

The cabin offers seclusion and good fishing. A rowboat and oars provided at the cabin gives anglers excellent opportunities to catch grayling on the small, adjacent lake. Life jackets are not provided, however.

Hunting is popular during designated seasons. The area is home to a variety of wildlife, including moose, black and brown bears, sheep, and mountain goats.

While there are no maintained trails in the area, it is rife with potential for exploration. A good day hike leads to views of the majestic Wolverine Glacier, high in the Kenai Mountains.

Facilities

The log cabin has bunk space for six and a maximum occupancy of eight people. It is equipped with counter space, table, benches and a wood stove for heat. An outhouse is also provided. Firewood is limited in the area. A handsaw and splitting maul are provided at the cabin.

Visitors will need to bring their own water for drinking, cooking and cleaning purposes. Water taken from the lakes or streams should be treated or boiled prior to consumption. Visitors will also need to bring their own bedding and sleeping pads, flashlights, cooking gear, food, clothing and cooking utensils, among other necessities. All garbage and food must be packed out.

Natural Features

The alpine cabin is located east of Seward Highway, on the western shore of Upper Paradise Lake.It sits in a forest of alder and willow trees at an elevation of about 1,340 feet and offers very scenic views. Wild berries are ripe for the picking in late-summer to fall.

For more information on access and regulations pertaining to this cabin, trail conditions, safety precautions and outdoor safety and ethics, please contact the Seward Ranger District.
