Alaska Region Cabins

Public Use Cabins

The Forest Service Alaska Region is seeking public input on proposed new cabin locations and cabin features.

Cabin proposals for the Tongass and Chugach National Forests are now online for the public to view and provide feedback. The interactive Alaska Region Cabins comment site is available through Oct. 31.

The Forest Service Alaska Region recently received $14.4 million from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for the construction, reconstruction, relocation, and repair of cabins.

More than 50 cabin proposals have been gathered from previous community engagement efforts. The Region wants the public’s help in narrowing down which proposals should move forward.

“We want to hear from the public about what they want to see,” said James King, Alaska Region director of recreation, lands, and minerals. “Knowing which locations people prefer and what kinds of cabin features we can add to ensure a more enjoyable stay will help us make this effort a success.”

The comment site will show approximate locations of cabin proposals with an opportunity to share preferences and comment on cabin features for the Region to consider as the effort moves forward. Some ranger districts will also be holding local feedback opportunities.
