I spent 3 days at this cabin in August of 2011. The setting is one of the best in Alaska. The views of the glacier are stunning. There is no trail into this cabin and it is difficult to hike due to the underbrush. I have heard they are going to replace this cabin with a new one, the current one is old but perfectly functional. If you want a little solitude with a great view this is the place. I tied up the plane near the gravel point. Normally there should not be much wind at this end of the lake. If the wind comes up there is a slip in front of the cabin which should give adequate protection. Like most cabins in the Chugach there is a shortage of wood, I take in a couple of bundles in the floats when I go to these cabins.
