Department of Natural Resources Cabins Review

Used by adventurers with extensive backcountry experience, these cabins have woodstoves, bunks, and tools for cutting wood. You have to supply everything else—food, bedding, water, cooking utensils. This is basic Alaskan shelter, but it can't be beat for leaving the real world behind. Hiking distances range from 3 to 10 mi, but the North Fork and Chena River cabins are road-accessible. The nightly fee ranges from $25 for the Colorado and Angel Creek cabins to $50 per night for the larger North Fork and Chena River cabins. Wildlife in the area includes moose, porcupines, lynx, fox, pine marten, wolves, coyotes, black bears, and, occasionally, grizzly bears. Facilities vary with each cabin.
