Kodiak Refuge Public-Use Cabins Review
Some of the Refuge's lesser-known wonders are the fantastic cabins that it has scattered all over Alaska. If you have ever wanted to be off alone in the Bush but still have a roof over your head, this is the way to go. The Kodiak Refuge has eight recreation cabins (accessible by floatplane or boat) available for up to seven days (longer in the off-season). Set along the coast and on inland lakes, the cabins are bare-bones, but do include bunks (which seldom come with mattresses), kerosene heaters (you bring in your own kerosene), tables, and benches. Most cabins hold six or eight people. Although the most popular locations can be booked solid, if you get a sudden impulse, it's always worth checking to see if a lesser-known (but likely just as beautiful) cabin 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.
