Kegan Creek Cabin offers visitors a unique lodging experience on Prince of Wales Island in southeastern Alaska. The remote site offers a scenic setting for fishing, hiking, beachcombing and wildlife viewing, all within the vicinity of the cabin.

The site is accessible by boat or float plane at high tide. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.


The location of the cabin is prime for anglers. Salmon runs draw both anglers and black bear to Kegan Creek. Rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, dolly varden, and salmon are also found in the nearby lakes, streams and ponds. A boat with oars is provided, which uses a long shaft motor, but guests must bring their own.

Hikers might also enjoy the easy half-mile trail along Kegan Creek that connects Kegan Cove with the cabin and Kegan Lake. Beachcombing is another popular pastime at the beach on the cove. A tidal flat emerges at low tide, exposing rock and sea-borne treasures.


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 people. The cabin is equipped with a table, benches, an oil stove for heat and an outside toilet. Other amenities include a cooking bench and a broom.

The cabin does not have running water or electricity. Guests must bring their own food, water, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, cook stove, stove fuel, #1 diesel stove oil, fire starter, cooking gear/utensils, light source (lantern), toilet paper, first aid kit and garbage bags.
