Shakes Slough Cabins Review

In addition to offering stunning views of the Popof Glacier and Mt. Basargin, these remote and very rustic Forest Service cabins are just a short, 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 feature 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 Forest Service office in Wrangell or make reservations by calling the National Recreation Reservation Service.
