So much fun

Joe Thompson's cabin is a rustic historical cabin much like Proenneke's One Man's Wilderness cabin at Twin Lakes. It is a small log cabin with minimal windows for light so be sure and bring a lantern. The location is stunning with views of western Lake Clark. Directly behind the cabin is Portage Creek trail which takes you above tree line in less than 2 hours. This historical route was climbed daily by Joe Thompson as he mined for gold near the summit. Thompsons cabin is located on the lakeshore and a series of nearby islands provides fun exploring by kayak. This cabin can be combined with Priest Rock public cabin for a kayak tour of Lake Clark. Water taxi and kayak rentals are available from

Perfect Getaway

This spacious warm cabin has amazing views! The cabin is furnished with bunk beds and NRS sleeping mats. All beds are located in one room, but there is plenty of good tent space near the cabin if anyone felt they needed more space. Fishing is good at the cabin or at nearby Kijik River. Hiking is limited here but there is plenty to explore with kayaks. Tulchina Adventures provides water taxi services, kayak rentals and camping gear rentals in Port Alsworth.
