Welcome to the Gulkana River Cabin!

Nicely furnished rustic cabin nestled among large spruce trees. Located near the Gulkana River Bridge (12 miles north of Glennallen). Cabin is also located just 8 miles from the historic Gakona Roadhouse and the Copper River. Beautiful views of the magnificent Wrangell Mountains abound in the area. Hipcampers will have access to all areas of the cabin and surroundings. The cabin is secluded and has a south facing view.

This is a remote cabin (vehicle accessible) and directions/check-in are provided by phone once booking is complete. There is no running water, electricity, or WIFI, and toilet facilities are provided by an outhouse. Guests are encouraged tp bring their own water. 

It is preferred that Hipcampers bring their own sleeping bags, but clean linens and sleeping bags are provided if needed.  Cabin does have a propane cooking stove, battery powered lighting, a wood stove/firewood, and kitchen supplies (pots, pans, dishes, silverware). There is excellent cell phone service with AT&T and GCI. The "Award Winning" comfortable upstairs king bed is accessed by a factory made ladder as shown in the photographs. This ladder may be difficult for elderly or handicapped persons to climb. 

No showers are available at the cabin, but may be available the Gakona Lodge and Caribou Hotel in Glennallen.  This place is designed for the person who enjoys a rustic, natural, pleasant, peaceful setting, or who just wants a place to crash while on the road. It is available at an economical price for those who are willing to sacrifice a few amenities. Most guests love it. Lots of mosquitoes in the area during the first part of the summer. It is requested that guests leave the cabin in a clean, tidy condition when they depart for the next guests since nobody is available on site. If You Are Looking For A True Alaskan Experience, this is it!! I, personally, come here occasionally to unwind! Check in is by phone. The cabin is 1/3 mile from the highway. Road is not plowed in the winter.

Again. guests are required to clean the cabin when they leave and leave it in good condition for the next guests since there is no on-site person.
