Fred’s Creek Cabin is located on an oceanfront, rocky shoreline, with fairly flat terrain, and surrounded by a hemlock-spruce forest. It is located about 6 miles east of Mt. Edgecumbe Volcano (dormant). The 6.7 mile Mt. Edgecumbe Trail starts near the cabin as it winds through muskeg and forest to the cone of Mt. Edgecumbe. Cabin users may encounter tour groups passing by the cabin to access the trailhead for the nearby Mt. Edgecumbe Trail. Cabin is equipped with a single-wide bunk over a double wide bunk downstairs and two single-wide bunks upstairs with floor space for additional persons. Camping within 200 feet of this cabin by anyone other than the person reserving the cabin is prohibited.
