If you’re looking for a very accessible and affordable place to rest your head in the 49th state, then look no further than the US Forest Service for some great deals on cabins. Granted, they’re a bit rustic; but they’re also a great choice for folks who love the outdoors.
Each cabin includes a table, benches, plywood bunks, a wood and/or oil heating stove, a broom and an outhouse. The cabins don’t have electricity, bedding or cooking utensils; however at $45-$50 per night, they’re a great bargain.
Here are a few of my favorites.
Located on Kupreanof Island at the mouth of Portage Bay, this modified A-frame cabin features an outhouse, boat ramp and a wooden walkway that are all barrier-free. It’s also a great spot for wildlife viewing and fishing.
This Pan Adobe cabin is located on the shore of Virginia Lake, just 10 miles east of Wrangell. It sleeps six, and features a wrap-around deck, an accessible walkway and a floating dock. Accessible trails are located nearby.
