Avoss Lake has an elevation of 775 feet and is fairly easy to get in and out of via floatplane. Tie up for airplanes is average.
The cabin is a typical A-Frame with stunning views to support. Cabin logs support that this cabin is mainly used for hunting so it may be harder to find availability.
The A-frame cabin measures 16 by 16 feet. It contains a sleeping loft that is reached by climbing a vertical ladder. The cabin’s lower level is furnished with one double plywood bunk and one single plywood bunk (no mattresses), a table and chairs, a cooking counter and a broom. An outhouse toilet is provided.
The cabin is equipped with an oil stove for heat, but oil is not provided. Visitors must bring their own supply of #1 diesel oil (10 gallons for a 3-day stay, more or less depending on the time of year). Transport oil in an FAA-approved container or jerry can in a non-tip box.
Visitors must also bring sleeping bags and pads, a cooking stove, pots, pans, plates, utensils, food, toilet paper, a lantern, garbage bags, a fire extinguisher, fire starter, rain gear and boots.
Water is available from the lake or nearby inlet stream, but must be treated before being used. It is recommended visitors bring their own supply of water.
A small but heavy, square-bowed skiff (rowboat) with oars is provided. A long-shaft outboard motor in the 2-10 hp range is highly recommended for use with the skiff, but is not provided. Each person using the skiff should have a Coast Guard approved personal floatation device (PFD). Tie the skiff well up on the shore and pull the plug before leaving so the boat does not fill with rain water.
Located on south-central Baranof Island, 35 air miles (30 minutes) southeast of Sitka and 5 miles northeast of Whale Bay.
