Satellite and Topo Map

General Description

The Square Lake Cabin is located southeast of Yakutat on the southeastern shore of Square Lake. This isolated lake is about 1 mile long and 1/3 mile wide. The surrounding terrain is flat and marshy, and forested with spruce and willow trees. There are many stream drainage's in the area. Local wildlife include moose, brown bear, waterfowl, otter, beaver, and trout. The cabin is equipped with wooden bunks, table, benches, oilstove for heat, and an outhouse. It does not have mattresses or cooking utensils. Cabin users should bring sleeping bags and pads, cookstove, cooking gear, and food. Users must bring #1 stove oil for heat. A floatplane charter may not be available out of Yakutat. Check before renting the cabin.

Reservations can be made the day of arrival, or up to 180 days in advance. Occasionally poor weather can result in extended stays, and cabin users should be prepared for this. In fall, winter, and early spring, the cabin may be inaccessible due to frozen lake surface (floatplanes cannot land). Please contact the local Forest Service Ranger District office for information prior to making reservations during these periods. There are NO discounts for Golden Age and Golden Access Passports for Alaska cabin rentals. The person holding the reservation must be 18 and must be a member of the party using the cabin. Use of this cabin by a commercial operator, such as an outfitter or guide, is NOT allowed. 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. All garbage and food must be packed out.

Directions: Located 38 miles southeast of Yakutat on southeast shore of Square Lake. Access is by floatplane only.
