Cabin Rentals

Goulding Lake Cabin is located in a flat, lightly wooded area on the northwest shore of Otter Lake. The surrounding terrain varies from open muskegs to densely forested steep slopes. This cabin is located within the West Chichagof-Yakobi Wilderness Area, access by helicopter is illegal. Otter Lake and Goulding Lake (to the east) are connected. Skiff at cabin can maneuver between the two lakes, but it does take patience. Boat at cabin cannot access lakes to the west of cabin. Suggested USGS topo map: Sitka D-7 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. A topographic map of this area is a must for exploration of nearby lakes and high alpine meadows. Water is available from the lake or nearby stream. Treat all water before using. Better idea is to bring your own water. Cabin is not maintained during winter. Firewood for the cabin 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. Occasionally poor weather can result in delayed arrivals or extended stays, and cabin users should be prepared for this. Pack out all gear, garbage and food that you bring to cabin. Reservations may be made on the day of arrival or up to 180 days in advance. Reservations are restricted to a maximum stay of 7 consecutive nights per party for any one reservation May 1 - September 30 and a maximum stay of 10 consecutive nights per party October 1 - April 30.
