Public Lake Cabins of Alaska

Marten Lake Cabin

Book Cabin | Additional Cabin Information

This is a great smaller cabin that has a small covered deck out front. When booking do not confuse this cabin with Martin Lake, which is another cabin located in the Copper River Delta area. This cabin is surrounded by tall mountains on all sides and makes for some beautiful views and photo opportunities. The water in front of the cabin is not very deep, so if you come by floatplane you’ll have to tie up about 500 feet away.


The 12-by-14 cabin (pan-abode style) has single and double bunks to sleep up to four people. The cabin also has a table and benches, a broom and a wood-burning stove for heat. An outhouse is located just outside the cabin. A wooden cooler box for food storage is located on the partially covered front porch. Water and electricity are not provided. Water is available from a stream behind the cabin, but guests should be sure to treat water taken from any outside source before drinking or cooking with it. It is recommended that guests bring their own water supply. In addition to bringing a cook stove, guests should provide their own firewood, 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.


The cabin is located at the upper end of Marten Lake on the mainland north of the Bradfield Canal. Access is by floatplane approximately 25 miles SE of Wrangell.
2023: Water level was notated as being 6 inches below the deck. Outhouse was also noted as being flimsy and needing work.
