Public Lake Cabins of Alaska

Kegan Cove Cabin

Book Cabin | Additional Cabin Information

This cabin was completely replaced with a new one in 2010, and is one of the newest cabins in the Tongass National Forest. This cabin is not located on a lake but is so spectacular it is worth the hike and effort to get here. Interested parties can land on Kegan Lake and make the hike in, by parking at the south end of the lake. According to local pilots it is possible to land in the bay and taxi in during high tide.


The cabin is a 16 x 18 foot cedar/Sitka spruce log cabin furnished with wooden bunkbeds (without mattresses) that can sleep up to six people. 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, and a broom. The cabin does not have running water or electricity. Visitors 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. Firewood may be available, but the supply cannot be guaranteed. Guests are asked to be conservative with wood and use their cook stoves for cooking. Water is available from Kegan Creek, but must be filtered, boiled or chemically treated before drinking.


Approximately 30 air miles from Ketchikan, Alaska, and 51 air miles from Craig on saltwater at Moira Sound. Accessible by floatplane or by boat. Refer to USGS Craig A-1.
