Public Lake Cabins of Alaska

Honker Lake Cabin

Book Cabin | Additional Cabin Information

This is a nice standard cabin with a covered deck, facing towards the west for afternoon sun.


The cabin is a 12 x 12 foot primitive, pre-cut cedar log cabin (pan-abode style) furnished with wooden bunkbeds (without mattresses) that sleep up to six guests. The cabin is equipped with a table, benches, a wood stove for heat and an outside toilet. Other amenities include a cooking counter, shelves, cupboard space, an axe, splitting maul, and a broom. Firewood may be available, but the supply cannot be guaranteed. The cabin does not have running water or electricity. Guests must bring their own food, water, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, cook stove, stove fuel, fire starter, cooking gear/utensils, light source (lantern), toilet paper, first aid kit and garbage bags. Water is available from the lake, but must be filtered, boiled or chemically treated before drinking. There is an aluminum skiff with oars available at the cabin, and guests may choose to bring a long shaft motor for boat use. Guests are responsible for bringing and using their own personal floatation devices.


Accessible by floatplane or canoe along the Honker Divide Canoe Route. 54 air miles (87 km) from Ketchikan, 27 miles (43 km) from Craig. To access by canoe launch at the Hatchery Creek bridge then paddle six miles to the cabin (takes 7-8 hours).
