Suloia Lake Cabin is located on Chichagof Island within the West Chichagof-Yakobi Wilderness Area. Spruce and hemlock forested ridges rise to 2600 feet, and there is a small gravel beach at the cabin. The lake is about 2 miles long by 1/2 mile wide. Hiking is limited, shoreline is brushy with little or no beach, but visitors can enjoy the wilderness solitude. Cabin has two single-wide bunks atop two double-wide bunks. Current cabin was built and donated by Carl Eurich family in memory of their son; this cabin replaced an older cabin on east shore. Suggested USGS topo map: Sitka B-5, B-6 The small, square-bowed skiff (rowboat) with oars is provided but is heavy. A long-shaft outboard motor in the 2-10 hp range is highly recommended for use with the skiff provided. Be sure the plug is in before launching the boat. Please tie the skiff well up on the shore and pull the plug before leaving so the boat does not fill with rain water. What to bring: Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices for each person using the skiff, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, cooking stove, fire starter, lantern, pots, pans, plates, utensils, food, toilet paper, garbage bags. Rubber boots and raingear are recommended Water is available from the lake or nearby inlet stream. Treat all water before using. Better idea is to bring your own water. Cabin is not maintained during winter. Firewood for the cabin stove may be in short supply or temporarily out at any time of year. Firewood not provided for outdoor campfires, gather only dead and down wood. Pack out all gear, garbage and food that you bring to cabin.
