Woewodski Island had extensive mining in the 1930s, but only small amounts of gold were found before the vein was lost. Current mining claims and possible activity may be happening nearby on the island.


The hunter-style cabin is equipped with four single wooden bunks, a table, benches, a wood stove for heat and an outhouse with a pit toilet. A covered deck overlooks the water. A broom, dust pan, axe and splitting maul are typically available, but may be missing or damaged. Firewood is generally available, but is not guaranteed. Firewood is for heating the cabin only, not for outdoor campfires. No drinking water is available at the cabin. A small creek serves as a water source and is located 100 yards east of the cabin. Water taken from the creek must be boiled or treated prior to consumption. Visitors need to bring their own sleeping bags and pads, cook stove and cooking gear, towels, food, clothing and garbage bags, among other necessities. All trash and food must be packed out, and visitors are expected to clean the cabin before leaving. Click here for more cabin details and maps.
