Sarkar Lake Cabin Site Cabin

  

Sarkar Lake Cabin

12' x 12' Pan-Abode precut cedar log cabin with large covered porch hidden in the forest on Sarkar Lake. Surrounding scenery characteristic of temperate rain forest. Old growth forest towers over muskegs, lakes and streams. Area has rich cultural history of Native American settlements, fox farming, extensive trapping. Sarkar Canoe Route begins on Sarkar Lake, goes 15 miles (24 km) into backcountry with several portages connecting 7 lakes with high quality fishing. Trumpeter swans in fall and spring. Large parking area, boat ramp and toilet at trailhead. Skiffs provided for cabin users, one at boat ramp and one at cabin. Take care when boating, numerous rocks in lake. Good marine chart recommended. Cabin sleeps up to 6, wood stove, outhouse, rowboat. Bring your own 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. Wood is not provided regularly at this site. Come prepared to provide your own (do not cut down trees near cabin). Compressed fire bricks are available for purchase at several locations on Price of Wales; call Craig Ranger District for more information.

The Sarkar area on Price of Wales Island now has something for everyone; a day use site, a cozy cabin and a canoe route. In 2015, road paving was completed and so was the Sarkar Recreation Area day use site. The site boasts a large covered pavilion, new outhouse, expanded parking, ramp to the lake's edge for easier access, and a fire ring with outdoor seating (wood not provided).
