General Information

Directions:

On the southwest shore of Coghill Lake, on a lagoon just before the Coghill River, on the east side of College Fiord in Prince William Sound. Accessible via floatplane (50 minutes from Anchorage or 60 minutes from Cordova).  Also access on trail from saltwater not recommended for large loads.  Trail is 3 miles.

Access to the cabin via jet- boat travel up the Coghill River is not recommended due to low water levels as well as a seasonal fish weir that blocks access from June to August.

Refer to USGS map, Anchorage A3.


General Notes:

This cabin offers a secluded getaway with much variety in scenery, vegetation, and wildlife. Fishing is excellent from the lakeshore, the stream, and the lagoon at the lake outlet. The cabin is in broken, open country with a view of glaciers—majestic photographic subjects. Salmonberries and blueberries are numerous near the cabin. The adventurous may enjoy hiking to College Fiord (There is a 3 mile trail but the brush is often thick).
