USFS - Chugach National Forest Recreation Cabins
The Chugach National Forest covers 5.8 million acres (about the size of the state of New Hampshire) and extends south and east of Anchorage along the southcentral Alaskan coast. The Chugach encompasses the northeastern Kenai Peninsula the arc of Prince William Sound and the Copper River Delta/Bering River area east of Cordova. It is a beautiful land of majestic mountains, free-flowing streams, frigid mountain lakes and productive waterfowl wetlands. It also contains spectacular ice fields, glaciers, snowcapped mountains and forested islands. There are numerous recreational cabins in the Chugach National Forest available for use by the public. They are located in scenic and often remote areas. They are accessible by floatplane, wheelplane, boat , or trail. One cabin near Cordova is accessible by road. Hikers should prepare for rigorous backcountry travel and be prepared to provide emergency shelter if they are unable to reach their cabin.
