Fodor's Review

In addition to offering stunning views of the Popof Glacier and Mt. Basargin, these remote and very rustic Forest Service cabins are a 4-mile boat ride from Shakes Slough Hot Springs, where you can soak in open-air and enclosed hot tubs. Guests may spot the brown and black bears, goats, and moose that frequent the area. Cabins sleep six on plywood bunks and contain basic facilities, including outhouses and woodstoves, but no water or electricity. Bring your own sleeping

bag, food, and cooking utensils. Reservations are required for the cabins; request details from the Wrangell Ranger District or make reservations by calling the National Recreation Reservation Service.
