Fodor's Review

The Cordova Ranger District of the Chugach National Forest maintains a series of 18 backcountry cabins for rent. These cabins are very basic: four walls, roof, floor, wooden bunks, usually a woodstove, table, benches, counter space for preparing meals, and a pit toilet out back. There's no bedding, cooking utensils, electricity, or running water. Most of the cabins are accessible only by boat or floatplane, although the McKinley Trail cabin is accessible by motor vehicle

on the Copper River Highway. Two others can be reached by hiking from the road. Rentals are arranged through the national parks' website up to six months in advance.
