This is a great little cabin to get away from town for a couple days, without being too far away. Locals use it for birthday parties and company retreats. Best to reserve well in advance, especially during the summer and the weekends.
The cabin is located within Starrigavan Creek Campground, which is within walking distance of the Forest & Muskeg trail, Estuary Loop trail, Mosquito Cove trail, Old Sitka, Old Sitka boat launch, and the shooting range. It’s just a few feet further to the ferry terminal.
The cabin has a view of the creek, and wildlife abounds. You will see ravens and bald eagles, and you could see bears. Bird watchers love the Estuary Loop trail and its bird watching station. There is an onsite outdoor bear proof food locker, a fire ring, and a picnic table. The cabin is large and comfortable even in bad weather. Pit toilets and potable water are just across the gravel road, and there’s an artesian well a short walk away.
