Bakewell Lake Cabin

Book Cabin | Additional Cabin Information

Bakewell Lake features a standard size cabin with a spacious covered deck. Bakewell is a beautiful lake with a nice cabin that is also home to Cutthroat Trout, Dolly Varden, Coho Salmon, and Steelhead fishing!

At the time of the Tom Bass expedition, the cabin had not been open for a number of years due to a research project being conducted on the lake. The cabin is now open and available for use!


The 12-by-14 cabin ( pan-abode style ) has two single bunks and two double bunks, to accommodate up to six people. It has a table and benches, an oil heater, cleaning equipment and an outhouse. Water, heating oil, and electricity are not provided. Guests must bring a supply of No.1 diesel oil or kerosene for the heater (five gallons will last approximately a week). Water is available from the lake or a nearby creek, but guests should be sure to treat water taken from any natural source prior to drinking or cooking with it. It is recommended that guests bring their own water supply. Other items to pack include sleeping bags, sleeping pads, lanterns or flashlights, cookware, plates, utensils, food, toilet paper, garbage bags, a fire extinguisher and matches, among other necessities. Guests are expected to pack out trash and clean the cabin before leaving.


This cabin is located approximately 40 air miles east of Ketchikan on the mainland south of Bakewell Arm off Smeaton Bay. Accessible by float plane or boat.
