12' x 14' Pan Abode log cabin with covered porch on edge of lake with large gravelly beach, surrounded by old-growth spruce, hemlock, and cedar forest. Good fishing for rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, Dolly Varden as well as coho, sockeye, and pink salmon. Migratory waterfowl in fall. Sitka black-tailed deer, black bear, marten, mink, otter, beaver common. Seals often seen in lake. Cabin sleeps up to 6, wood stove (wood sometimes provided), outhouse, rowboat. Bring your own stove fuel (#1 diesel, uses 0.2 gal/hour at highest setting), Personal flotation devices, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, cooking stove, lantern, pots, pans, plates, utensils, food, toilet paper, garbage bags and fire starter. It's a good idea to bring your own water. Please take your fuel container with you when you leave. The Forest Service suggests that you not use the water from these streams for drinking water because of low PH and metal concentrations.
