Forest Service Recreational Cabin Rental Rates in Alaska
JUNEAU, Alaska — This month, the U.S. Forest Service will begin the second phase of a three-year phase-in process to adjust the rental rate fees for many of the 184 cabins on the Chugach and Tongass National Forests. These cabins are some of the most popular recreation destinations for residents and visitors alike. They offer visitors an opportunity for recreation, relaxation, and a unique backcountry experience.
Adjusted fees vary by cabin based on public demand, market comparisons, and an evaluation of cabin amenities. The cabin fee adjustment is part of the Alaska Region’s strategy to meet the public’s desire to enjoy their public lands, and work with our partners and volunteers to continue to provide high-quality recreational opportunities. We are monitoring these proposed changes during the phase-in period to make any necessary adjustments to the program.
Plan to reserve your favorite cabin six months before your travel dates, as many popular cabins book up quickly. For more information and to make reservations, please visit: http://www.recreation.gov.
The Alaska Region of the Forest Service manages almost 22 million acres of land within the Chugach and Tongass National Forests to meet society’s needs for a variety of goods, services, and amenities while enhancing the Forests’ health and productivity, and to foster similar outcomes for State and private forestland across Alaska. The U.S. Forest Service is an agency of the United States Department of Agriculture. See our website at http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/
