Thanks to Alaska’s state and national parks, there are a trove of public-use cabins to visit around Seward. Located on trails or near lakes, nestled amidst the tundra, or on saltwater beaches, a few of the cabins are accessible via the road or a short walk, but many require a bit of hiking and planning. Most are accessible year-round, as long as you like traveling in the snow. Some are accessible only by plane or floatplane.
Reserve public-use cabins in advance to get off the grid and into the wilderness. Book with Alaska State Parks at www.reserveamerica.com, and Kenai Fjords National Park and Chugach National Forest at www.recreation.gov.
The land around Seward is vast and unique, full of beautiful panoramas where mountains, forests, ice, and ocean meet. With an abundance of recreational opportunities right at our doorstep, we’re happy these public lands are in our backyard.
