Kodiak Refuge Public-Use Cabins

1390 Buskin River Rd., Kodiak, Alaska, 99615, USA

One of the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge's lesser-known wonders is its collection of eight fantastic cabins scattered throughout the refuge. If you've ever wanted to be off alone in the Bush but still have a roof over your head, this is the way to go. The cabins are accessible by floatplane or boat, and available for up to seven days in summer and for longer the rest of the year. Set along the coast and on inland lakes, the cabins are bare-bones but do include bunks (which do not come with mattresses), kerosene heaters (you bring in your own kerosene), tables, and benches. Most cabins hold six or eight people. Although they usually book up six months in advance, if you get a sudden impulse, it's always worth checking to see if one is available. The cabins on inland lakes are usually not accessible in winter, and it's important to remember that any time you fly into remote Alaska you should come prepared for delays getting back out. Pack extra food and supplies, just in case.
