Would you like to go camping in SE Alaska?
Fish in the wilderness? Observe wildlife?
Just get away from it all?

The most practical way to do so is to use one of the cabins provided by the US Forest Service.

The U.S.Forest Service has built many cabins in the Tongass National Forest and The Misty Fjords National Monument. They rent these cabins to the public for $25.00 - $45.00 daily. In the case of the lake cabins the only way to get to them is by air as they are remote and otherwise inaccessible.

Don't want to lug lots of camping gear through the airport? We have camp kits to rent with a full contingent of gear for reasonable prices. We also have 6hp outboard motors to rent that fit the boats at the cabins.

We have a lot of experience taking people to these cabins and camping at them ourselves, so if you need some advice as to types of fishing, scenery, type of cabin, trails, etc., please give us a call or e-mail us, we'd love to talk with you.

Below is a table which shows some of the more popular cabins and our charter rate to get you to the cabin and back to Ketchikan.We fly a Cessna 185 on floats. You and your baggage may not exceed 800 lbs per trip. This is normally adequate for two people and enough gear to stay up to one week. This price does not include the rental of the cabin, you need to get in touch with ReserveAmerica for rentals.

"Just wanted to drop a line in and say hello and to let you know what a wonderful experience we had flying into those 2 cabins with you. Thanks for putting up with all of our gear and letting Hayden (our dog) tag along.
We will be back for another trip to McDonald Lake and somewhere else new and special!"
