Spring is in the air in Alaska. Ice on the lakes is getting soft and candled. Soon there will be open leads with swans, loons, ducks and many other birds touring the area in search of just the right nesting spot. It’s not quite ready for kayaking or canoeing but the Public Use at Cabins Byer’s Lake are booking up fast. If you haven’t reserved a cabin for your summer getaway nest, there are still a few days available but… reserve one now, don’t wait.
There are three public-use cabins on the shores of Byer’s Lake and three brand new cabins in the K’esugi Ken campground (mile 135.4 Parks Hwy). These cabins opened for public use at the campground’s grand opening in May 2017, and you can reserve them online as well. The Hunter and Tokosha cabins each sleep up to eight, use wood heat, offer full handicapped access and cost $75/night. The larger Denali cabin sleeps 10 and will rent for $100/night, but only in winter months. In the summer this cabin is home to the campground host. All of the K’esugi Ken cabins and most of the campsites feature incredible views of the Alaska Range, weather permitting.
