Alaska Residents – Stake your own parcel of State Land


(Anchorage, AK) – The Department of Natural Resources is inviting Alaskans interested in owning a piece of the Last Frontier to participate in the 2017 Remote Recreational Cabin Sites staking program. This unique offering gives Alaskan residents the opportunity to stake their own parcel of state land within one of two areas. This year’s staking areas are Mount Ryan II, along the Steese Highway, and Granite Mountain, on the Kuskokwim River.

Alaska residents may submit applications in person, by mail, or online between 10 a.m. on August 21 and 5 p.m. on October 13.  The drawing will be held on November 1. Free brochures describing this year’s Remote Recreational Cabin Sites offering will be available August 21st online at  landsales.alaska.gov<http://landsales.alaska.gov> or in print from DNR’s Public Information Centers in Anchorage and Fairbanks.

Drawing winners will receive an authorization to stake their own parcel within the staking area.  The Granite Mountain staking area is located along the Kuskokwim River approximately 45 miles southwest of McGrath and 40 miles northeast of Stony River.  The Mount Ryan II area has relatively easy access via ATVs on existing trails, and is approximately 50 miles northeast of Fairbanks and south of the Steese Highway.
