Kathleen Lake Cabin

Kathleen Lake Cabin is at the east end of Kathleen Lake. It is a standard A-frame with a good beach for your plane. I have not been here during a good wind but potentially it could be a problem. The cabin sits back 200 feet from the beach. Much of the surrounding area is private land and has been clear-cut. Clear-cut’s and roads are visible from the cabin. You are in brown bear country. Both brown bear and deer can be seen in the area. Deer hunting is a popular fall activity. You are surrounded by Shee Atika Corporation lands and a permit is necessary to hike from the cabin. Fee information and application forms are available from the corporation by calling toll-free 1-800-478-3534. This cabin is great for hunting but not one I would select for a summer vacation. This cabin and surrounding land is similar to Florence Lake, if you are going hunting either would work about the same.
