Probably 95 per cent of Alaskan visitors miss one of the state's most rewarding, yet inexpensive vacation opportunities-flying, hiking or boating to a US Forest Service cabin in the wilderness.
The Forest Service has built and maintains 150 cabins in the Tongass National Forest, which covers all of southeastern Alaska. An additional 41 cabins have been constructed in the Chugach National Forest, which includes portions of the Kenai Peninsula, Prince William Sound and the Copper River Delta.
From almost every Alaska ferry port in Southeast Alaska aircraft can be chartered to fly families or groups. Thirty minutes of flying time is sufficient to reach most cabins. Some cabins are accessible by hiker's trail or charter boat.
Each cabin includes bunks, wood or oil stove and outdoor sanitary facilities. Bedding and cooking utensils are not furnished.
A charge of $35 per party per night is made for each cabin permit. Reservations are required and can be made up to six months in advance by completing an application and depositing the fee with the Forest Service.
