Goulding Lake Cabin Reservations



Satellite and Topo Map




General Description

Goulding Lake Cabin is located in a flat, lightly wooded area on the northwest shore of Otter Lake. The surrounding terrain varies from open muskegs to densely forested steep slopes. There are cutthroat trout below the falls and in the lower lake. Dolly Varden fishing is year round, while steelhead and coho fishing are seasonal. Photo opportunities abound. A-frame cabin is equipped with sleeping loft, wooden bunks, table, benches, woodstove for heat, and an outhouse. It has no mattresses or cooking utensils. Cabin users should bring sleeping bags, pads, cookstove, cooking gear, and food. A skiff with oars is provided for cabin users only; bring personal flotation devices. A 2-10 HP longshaft outboard motor (not provided) enhances use of skiff. There are NO discounts for Golden Age and Golden Passports for Alaska cabin rentals. The person holding the reservation must be 18 and must be a member of the party using the cabin. Reservations are restricted to a maximum stay of 7 consecutive nights per party for any one reservation May 1 - September 30 and a maximum stay of 10 consecutive nights per party October 1 - April 30. Access by floatplane only. This cabin is in a designated Wilderness area, and access by helicopter is illegal.

Reservations can be made the day of arrival, or up to 180 days in advance. Boil or treat water before drinking. All garbage and food must be packed out. Occasionally poor weather can cause travel delays, and cabin users should be prepared for this. November through early May the cabin may be inaccessible due to frozen lake surface (floatplanes cannot land). Please contact the local Forest Service Ranger District office for current information prior to making reservations during these periods.

Directions: Accessible late May through October. Otter Lake, one of four lakes in the Goulding Lakes System, is located about 60 miles northwest of Sitka on the western edge of Chichagof Island. Access is by floatplane only, about 50-minute flight from Sitka or Juneau. Refer to USGS topographic map Sitka D-7. This cabin is in a designated Wilderness area, and access by helicopter is illegal.
