Jims Lake Cabin


Jim's Lake Cabin

This is a typical Pan Abode cabin with a wood stove and sleeping space for 4 to 6 people. The cabin rests on a small rise adjacent to the beach with a nice overlook of the lake. Facilities: 2 single wooden bunks, 2 double wooden bunks, broom, axe and maul, wood stove, wood, table and benches, outhouse, cooking counter, skiff with oars. Water is available from the lake. Treat all water before using. Bring your own personal flotation devices, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, cooking stove, lantern, pots, pans, plates, utensils, food, toilet paper, garbage bags, fire extinguisher, and fire starter. Cabin users may also choose to bring a small outboard motor (less than 10 horsepower due to wilderness regulations). You are in brown bear country. This cabin offers the most solitude on the island. The lake is small and away from most flight paths.

Firewood is generally stacked in a woodshed near the cabin, but it is not guaranteed.
