Cool cabin with lots of unique features

Perch on a hill

Great cabin on Crescent Lake for a long day hike or make it an overnight at the other cabin first. Be careful of avalanches in the spring even when most of the snow has melted

One of Alaska's best

The Dale Clemins cabin is one of everyone's favorites. The hike to the cabin isn't too strenuous, and runs through beautiful lush temperate rainforest. It's stocked with propane for heat, so you don't have to haul in or scavenge for firewood. The cabin has plenty of sleeping room, plus a beautiful deck with views of glaciers and overlooks Resurrection Bay

Quiet spot with lots of recreational opportunities

Beautiful lake with lots of camp spots and 3 public use cabins.

Canoe and kayak rentals are available at the lake from Denali Southside River Guides www.denaliriverguides.com

Great lake for fishing, swimming, and wildlife viewing (trumpeter swans, black bears, moose). The loop trail around the lake is a great short day hike, with a few cool bridges. From this trail you can connect to Kesugi ridge trail.

There's no view of Denali from the campground or cabins 1 & 3, but the hike to the east side of the lake does, as well as cabin #2

Cabins are also great for winter aurora viewing!
