This cabin is nestled between the lily pad-covered lake and forested wetlands. Birch Lake has a developed boat launch and boat tie-ups, drinking water well (seasonal), outhouse, tent campsites as well as RV sites. Birch Lake Cabin furnishings include plywood sleeping platforms, a kitchen counter, shelves, table and benches, wood stove, fire extinguisher, and an outdoor latrine. Firewood is not provided and is hard to find at Birch Lake, so be sure to bring your own fire wood.
The lake is popular with fishers, jet-skiers, and water skiers in the summer, and with snow-machiners and ice fishers in the winter. There is excellent fishing all year for stocked species: rainbow trout, king and silver salmon, grayling and arctic char. Fishing during the open water months is best from a boat. Ice fishing huts are available for rent, usually between November and April. Rent an ice fishing hut
