North Young Lake Cabin Lookout/cabin

  

Young Lake (North) Cabin

This Pan Abode cabin with a sleeping space for 4 to 6 people sits back 50' (15 m) from the lake edge under a canopy of trees and small beach. Facilities: 2 single wooden bunks, 2 double wooden bunks, cooking counter, broom, outhouse, oil stove (uses #1 stove oil, NOT provided), skiff with oars, table and benches. Water is available from the lake. Treat all water before using. Bring your own personal flotation devices, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, cooking stove, lantern, pots, pans, plates, utensils, food, toilet paper, garbage bags, fire extinguisher, and fire starter. Please follow the oil stove directions carefully. Cabin users may also choose to bring a small outboard motor (less than 10 horsepower due to wilderness regulations). This is 1 of 2 cabins on the lake (the other is the South Young Lake cabin). You are in brown bear country. Bears frequent the area and trail particularly during salmon runs July through August. The Admiralty Cove-Young Lake trail is a 4½ mile trail that departs from the cabin and ends at the Admiralty Cove cabin. It is a relatively flat trail and follows the creek at each end of the trail. The round trip hike can be fairly strenuous when conditions are very wet. The lake is on a flight path and has substantial overhead plane traffic.
