Overview

East Creek Cabin is a remote, rustic cabin on the Kenai Peninsula of south-central Alaska. It gives visitors a primitive camping experience amid spectacular scenery. In addition to miles of trails available for exploration, the cabin provides access to opportunities for big game hunting and wildlife viewing.

The cabin can be accessed by hiking, horseback riding, skiing, biking or snowmobiles. The trail is open to snowmobiles every other year. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.

Recreation

Hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing along Resurrection Pass Trail are popular activities. Learn more about Resurrection Pass Trail North and South and Devils Creek Trail Active mining operations are on private claims of the creek, yet there are designated areas for the public to pan for gold along the trail.

In season, visitors hunt for moose, black and brown bears, Dall sheep, mountain goats, caribou and wolves in the surrounding forest. Fishing in the area is not great.

The cabin has bunk space for six and a maximum occupancy of eight people. It is equipped with counter space, table, benches and a wood stove for heat. A splitting maul and hand saw are available. An outhouse is also provided.

There is no electricity, potable water, mattresses, bedding, cooking utensils, or cut firewood at the cabin. Visitors should bring sleeping bags and pads, a cook stove, cooking gear and food. Water taken from lakes or streams should be treated or boiled before consumption. All garbage and food must be packed out.

Natural Features

The cabin is north of Sterling Highway in the Resurrection Creek Valley. It is in a fairly level area, surrounded by a spruce and birch forest with views of nearby mountains and meadows. A variety of wildlife makes its home in the area. Berries ripen mid-July through mid-September.
