Forest cabins and campsites provide for remote getaways
The Forest Service maintains a number of public-use cabins on Prince of Wales Island. Cabins can be rented for up to 14 nights. All the cabins offer special settings. You might drive to a cabin perched on the edge of a saltwater inlet. Another cabin will be accessible by rowboat across a lake (boat and oars provided, but you could bring your own small outboard motor). Alpine cabins are accessible by floatplane. Each cabin offers unique sights: leaping whales or rocky cliffs, giant cedars or a stream overflowing with salmon. See the table below for accessibility. Camping is available for tents and RVs at Eagles Nest and Harris River sites. Cabins and campgrounds are marked on the centerfold map. Reservations are required for cabins.
