Humpback Lake Cabin

Book Cabin | Additional Cabin Information

This is a basic cabin located in a fantastic setting. According to Tom Bass there are great views and a stream right next to the cabin. Approach slow when heading towards the beach as there are rocks in the landing area.


This 12×14-ft. pan-abode style cabin sleeps six and comes equipped with two single bunks, two double bunks, a table and benches, tiny woodstove, broom and an outhouse. Firewood cannot be guaranteed, bring your own firewood or bio-bricks. Water and electricity are not provided. Water is available from the lake, but guests must treat water before 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 fire starter. Guests are expected to pack out trash and clean the cabin before leaving.


The cabin is approximately 48 air miles southeast of Ketchikan, east of Mink Bay on the mainland. Accessible only by floatplane; Humpback Trail does NOT access the cabin. Refer to: USGS map Ketchikan A-2.
